Current Highlights

Dr. Helga Wall-Apelt’s Personal Asian Collection was approximately 60 years in the making. She is the daughter of a former prominent German physician and she, together with her father, escaped the Holocaust during World War II. After this traumatic experience, Dr. Wall-Apelt found great solace in the practice of meditation and his involvement in the Asian culture. His admiration, love and passion for the culture and their artistic items transmitted to his daughter, who while in medical school, began collecting Asian items. Dr. Helga Wall-Apelt eventually visited China to expand her knowledge in the art of acupuncture and ancient herbal treatments.
This is James D. Julia’s most expansive division; focusing on Americana, Fine Art, Antiques, Victoriana and Asian items. This unit conducts two auctions per year and has an international reputation for excellence. With sales routinely grossing $3 million to $5 million per auction, this division has established numerous world and national records. With the growth and interest in the Asian Art market continuing to rise, Julia’s has taken a leadership position in this category by bringing on James Callahan, “Antiques Roadshow” regular and one of the top Asian Arts specialists in the country. This division handles complete estates and high value individual items in almost any antique collectible category.
