Unusual gilt bronze with white nephrite cabochon. Possibly used as a place to hang a knife from a belt by Tibetan aristocracy but to be honest I am not sure. It is a quirky well crafted item and certainly at least Qing Dynasty. This may be repurposed as a ring or pendant. 3.3cm x 4cm. Free shipping via Hong Kong registered airmail.

Exceptionally fine and sophisticated polished stone axe. This was acquired in Northern Thailand and aside from that I have no further information. This could be anywhere from 4000 to 2000 years old. The stone has a jade like hardness and cannot be scratched with a steel blade. From the curvature of the piece I am guessing this might have been used to hollow out wood. The cutting edge is still amazing sharp with only minute chips. L: 13cm/5.1in and W: 2.8cm/1.1in at midpoint.

This is Noragi used in the Tohoku district from the last years of Meiji to the Taisho era period. This Sashiko was made with a machine. The sewing machine was imported from Edo period by Japan. In Sashiko with the machine, I think that this type of item is a beginning in the Tohoku district. The dye of the natural indigo plant is used for this. Therefore this has rubbed natural fading. This brings about the change that an indigo plant place and comparison with fading are interesting...

Chinese Cloisonne Lidded Jar

20th century

Size: Diameter 12.5cm Height 15cm

An interesting Chinese cloisonné jar decorated with scrolling vines and two bird and flower views. On one side of the jar an inscription is found with the title of the work and a date around 1989 but rather hard to discern if it is a 20th century work or of a latter period. Traditional motifs and designs found in Chinese art and architecture can be seen on this piece.

Strand of Yuan to Ming Dynasty glass trade beads excavated from the Tak Hilltop burial site along the Thai Burmese border. Because of the 14th to 16th CE ceramics found the same strata it is easy to date these beads being from no later than this period, although archaic jade items over a thousand years old were found as well, these were most likely ancient trade items that have been circulating for over a millennia.
