Guy E. Mayer (1904-1952)

Guy Mayer was born into a humble family in New York City in 1904. During his college years, Guy developed an interest in Eastern arts where he began his journey as an avid collector. After college, Guy had a missionary opportunity in 1927 that took him across the vast ocean where he set foot in Japan. During his stay in Japan and through various learning opportunities, Guy’s ambition to discover the origin of Eastern arts grew even stronger. In 1928, Guy took another shorter missionary journey to China. Though many encounters, Guy recognized the immense love for Chinese antiques and culture. He was introduced, which eventually let to his vast collection of Chinese Buddhist statues, Chinese paintings and calligraphies, jade, snuff bottles and more. With the growing intensity of the war in China, Guy decided to preserve and maintain his collection of antiques which represents a cultural significance from the catastrophic bloodshed and hostility. In 1933, Guy returned to New York City where he eventually opened Guy E. Mayer Gallery to the public in 1935 on 578 Madison Ave, then quickly moved to 41 East 57th St, to boast his ambition for the love of Chinese arts. Doug G. Mayer, the grandson of Guy E. Mayer, who inherited his late grandfather’s antiques to consign some of the items with us for auctions gradually.
