The Art and Orchid Gallery's limnings, or miniature paintings, are the quintessence of 'email des peintres', that is, enamels painted on plaques.[8A, 13B] These miniatures display radiant luminosity through the predominant use of 'a jour' enameling, i.e. transparent enamels which exploits the shine of the underlying metals.[13C] Various degrees of chromatic intensity from light of the setting summer skies reflect in pink skin tones of the figures, flowing water, and satiny dr ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's well done hand painted Shou dai Niao, or 'bird with long feathers', was painted on silk in China before 1980.[123A] The bird, perched on a bough of viburnum has a very long split tail like a flashy Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher but the colors of America's Eastern Bluebird.[143B] Birds with long tail feathers have been popular subjects for Chinese painting, and other arts, during the Ming and Qing Dynasties and were frequently exported during the 19th Cen ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's antique large Tibetan bowl with cover is multimedia and probably multi-cultural . It is an unusually skillful, ingenious and creative mixture of decorative motifs and techniques. It has the typical ambiguity of provenance one finds in objects of "Tibetan Art".[187A] This exemplary creation exhibits Chinese brightly enameled metals over Indian repousse copper lotus designs and appliques of carved semi-precious stones, characteristic of Nepalese craftsme ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's ceramic covered bowl is an antiquity from Southeast Asia, made in the ancient Sawankhalok or Annam kilns during the 14th-15th Century. Both were cultural centers and are now part of Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.[179A, 38B] The bowl still bears the sticker, dated 14th Century, of the largest retail store in Chicago, named Marshall Field and Co., founded in 1852.[179C] Around the turn of the last century prestigious stores with wealthy clientele, such as Marshall Fi ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's antique ivory carving is the figure of the Taoist immortal, 'Ramsaikwa' (known as Lan Ts'an-ho in Chinese), wearing her mugwort leaves skirt and carrying her characteristic attribute of a basket of flowers.[200A, 191B, 33C] She represents a Taoist immortal, possibly the least well-documented but best known for her basket of flowers, a Taoist attribute.[86D, 73E] One story claims Ramsaikwa to have been a weird woman dressed in tattered clothing and le ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's cinerary, or funerary, urn with cover is made of a very translucent porcelain.(see photos) Even with its interior brown stained crackle glaze and fine enamel colors over glazed exterior, one can easily pass light through the urn. It was probably made in South China for export to Siam ( now Thailand). This may have been as early as 1775 based on referenced colors, particularly the red ground for the Siamese Buddhist deities.[198A] The major ornamentation is altern ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's hand decorated condiment jar is from Thailand, the 19th Century Bangkok Period.[198A] Similar ceramic lidded jars from Thailand (Siam) were made in China for the Thai market between 1775 and 1825 and can be found in references.[198B, 179C] Larger covered containers were used in Thailand to serve food and smaller ones, like ours, contained betel nuts (nuts of the Betel palm), or a condiment made of betel nuts.[198D] This vessel and cover are made of porcelain wit ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's hand carved ivory netsuke has two faces, happy and sad, on a spinning bar. This is a rare but not unreferenced piece. We found two others out of hundreds researched.[12A] The ivory is signed with incised, stained mark on bottom (see photo). The carving depicts a seated woman with a fan, long hair and incised kimono. The kimono motifs are rice grain and pine branch. There are pierced holes for the 'himo' (silk cord).[42B, 120C] A netsuke is a toggle held a ...click for details
