This carving is probably 50 years old. The details are outstanding and the quality of the soapstone is also outstanding. The God of wisdom with elongated forehead is holding a peach for longevity. Oily smooth yellow-tan soapstone has very uniform matrix. The piece is small at 2 1/2" tall, but the very fine carving of face, hand and clothing makes this a special piece.

These heavy guage copper with class enamel bottles were made for export at the turn of the last century. I have seen them called "Ferderal Period" They are hard to find now and this one has no cracks, chips or damage which is VERY rare. Wonderful blues, Unicorn beast same on both sides. Great lion face handles. It is a little over 2 3/4" tall. Brass spoon and traditional original glass/brass top. For more pictures or additional information please contact me through this site.

This is the type of metal temple image that you would expect to see in an old Chinese temple. It is made of some type of metal, probably a mixture of iron and others. It has been painted and has gold leaf on body parts. It has a look of great antiquity, but I do not think it is more than about 40 years old. It is a little over 4 3/4" tall. Has no damage and has a very nice "old" look to it.

Unique and beautiful describe this fantastical seahorse medicine container from Indonesia. Entirely hand made by using a complex lost wax process. It is a composition white brass or bronze like metal. It opens to hold medicine. Seahorse has human figures on it, to my understanding this is meant for protection. Piece is 5 1/2" long and heavy cast. A great piece of Folk art.
