Carved from one piece of dense hard wood, this is a beautiful and very old piece with a fine patina and wear that shows decades of use. Note the native repair on the side where the vessel cracked, I suspect this is why it was given up. About 17" long, dates to the late 19th century or even earlier.

This is a very fine example of kodogu. Beautifully and finely rendered sweet fish swimming in a stream. Shibuichi or possibly copper with gold highlights. Near mint condition. There is a 3 kanji inscription on the back that seems to refer to evening calm. It is signed Seizui possibly for Hamano Seizui 1695 to 1769, the period and the school look correct to me. Any further information would be welcome. 17.5 x 1.1 x .3 cm. Much nicer than the pictures with excellent detail.

I bought this piece over 20 years ago when I lived in Minneapolis, I took it to the Museum at the Minneapolis Institute of Art when they used to have their Sunday afternoon appraisals. The head curator of Asian art Dr, Jacobsen really liked this piece, and mentioned that they are hard to come by, he dated it to the 1890's. This type of bowl is apparently used for ceremonial offerings at buddhist temples and shrines...

This beautiful coat dates from the 1950's and is fairly large for a Hmong item( fits my wife perfectly and she is about 5'6" tall and medium build ). These are made by saturating fabric with indigo until the dye forms a sort of shiny iridescent coating that is also water resistant. Then traditional patterns are sewn into the coat using various thread. These items take many hours to make, and are rarely made anymore. Excellent condition.

I purchased this from Wyndham Street Ltd. a local Asian and English antique store here in Omaha a few years ago, paid $250. The trunk is in good shape and about 21" long by about 10" by 10". Dimensions are approximate, has hand made iron latch and hinges. The age was determined by the shop, not me.
