$26.00 

This is a traditional Indian toy with a brass animal on wheels. This is a smaller version than most. It is 2 1/2" tall and rare for this miniature size. As you can see it is a lost wax casting, primitive but very charming. It is a rider atop an Elephant. Probably 40 to 50 years old. A nice piece.

My own original so you will not see it elsewhere.

This snuff bottle came from an estate in London. It is old, at least 70 years and it is unusual in its size of 3 3/4" tall. It has highly raised figures and is an export quality. It has no damage, base has normal firing flaws for this type of ware. Nice look, glass top with brass spoon. An old piece soon to be considered antique. A good addition to a collection and a pleasing piece to look at.

This small 2" tall carving packs a lot of style. It is a Chinese beast of Myth. A combination of several animals, a lot of Lion. It was carved at least 20 years ago. It looks better than photos which did not capture the true soft jade like qualities of the stone.

An outstanding snuff bottle. Beautiful Serpentine Jade. Wonderful carving with 2 li Dragons as handles. Key design on bottom rim. Bone spoon. This bottle is 3" tall, 1/2" thick and well hollowed out. It looks much more expensive than my price now, and I am sure it will do better than the stock market as a term investment and something wonderful to look at while it grows in value. Not new, it is probably at least a few decades old.
