Upon request please. 

This outstanding carved opal is from China. Not sure of exact age but at least 80 years old. Museum quality white opal, not dyed. Museum quality carving, opal is very brittle and the most difficult gem stone to carve. On a custom base, wood with metal wire inlay. This piece is 2 7/8" tall with base, opal is about 2" tall. No picture can capture the living fire of an opal. There are no flaws or damage to this piece. This is a very rare museum piece that I offer.

I estimate this bottle to be vintage based on the somewhat crude white porcelain body, the overglaze red painted dragon and the cobalt blue side details. It is small at about 2 1/2". It has no marks. It has a fitting porcelain top with bone spoon. I do not price it high as I am not positive as to how old it is.

Not all Ghau prayer boxes from Tibet are created equal. The craftsmanship does vary quite a bit. This one has been made by a master in metal work and very well crafted. Coin silver front, copper sides and back. It is in a brocade case with a strap so it can be worn around the neck. It has a black clay Buddha in the window. It has auspicious symbols and a lion face on the front. It is about 3 1/2" X 2 7/8" and 1 1/4" deep. Neck strap is about 3.5 feet long. A stunning piece. Most o ...click for details

Very attractive piece with beautiful carving. The natural malachite graining-matrix does not show in the photographs except for the bottom view but it does have a beautiful matrix in the carving. This is a fine piece of work. It is Chinese and from the "Hong Kong" mark on the bottom of the wood base [inlayed with silver metal], it would be made during the embargo period for Chinese goods, over 40 years ago. It is just under 4" tall with custom made hardwood stand. Perfect conditio ...click for details

$410.00 

A beautiful vintage snuff bottle. Yellow snowflake Peking glass. 5 color overlay. Lucky symbols abound on this very good bottle. Beautiful carved blue glass top with moth pattern. These good bottles continue to go up in price. They have not been carved this well in decades, they never will be again. I find rapid increases in snuff bottle prices, and rapid decline in the quality of newer work. This bottle in an investment, better than anything on the market today. It is about 3 1/4" tall.
