China is one of the world’s largest auction markets, generating billions of dollars each year. And its ultra-wealthy are cashing into the world of quick returns. But not everyone's a winner.

From the rolling hills of China's last archaeological site, to the kilns of forgery masters and the private museums of the country's super rich, 101 East explores the world of Chinese antiques and asks, will human greed destroy this centuries old history?

http://www.antique-swords.co.uk Looking at an original antique Chinese dao of quite large proportions. The dao is a general name for a sword type found all over China for hundreds of years - there are many varieties, one and two-handed, large and small. They were carried by all types of soldiers as sidearms. They can be found in all kinds of qualities, from mass produced government-issue to top quality heirloom weapons. This example is at the lower end of the scale and was probably produced for the Boxer Rebellion.

I bought these swords from eBay from China a few years ago for a song. Are they cheap fakes or genuine articles? You judge for yourself. I just checked eBay again. There are fewer and fewer of these nowadays, especially ones with inscriptions. And they sell for much, much more. The katana on top has the inscription of 寬永元年 (the 1st year of Kan'ei Period--1624).

The last short tanto has the inscription 正宗 (Masamune) but no d...
