Rare small vase for the scholar’s desk with chocolate brown bronze glaze circa 19th century Qing Dynasty. There is one small chip inside the foot rim noted in enlargement #3. Otherwise perfect condition. H: 12.1cm/4.7in and D: 6.8cm/2.6in. Please note that the vase is more slender than the images might indicate so I have taken one with it laying on its side.

Southern Song vase with Jizhou glaze and impressed floral and lotus patterns, an interesting piece in that this type of piece is usually found in Qingbai ware, with which they were often fired at the same kilns with. There are some blue highlights and minor fritting in the glaze (as is typical of Jizhou) and one repaired chip which may be viewed in last enlargement. H: 15cm/5.9in and D: 8cm/3.1in.

Classic Ming celadon bowl from the Longquan kiln, unfortunately the photos do not do this piece justice. It is a heavy, meaty piece at just under near one l kilo/2 lbs in weight. It is just about one shade darker from being classified as a “sea green”, the best approximation to matching the color may seen in enlargement 3 showing the pattern of the impressed chrysanthemum. As my photo editing software tends to truncate images it is not as flat and wide as the photos indicate...

Nice old pre war shop sign from Hong Kong. The characters read Yuan Sheng Tai. It has been suggested to me this from a rice shop, although I am not sure- I am assuming the characters refer to the name of the owner. Very heavy hard wood, weighs about 8kg. H: 98cm/38.5in and W: 44cm/7.2in one chip on upper right hand corner. Lovely old Hong Mu wood with nice grain.

Nice old attractive, pre war Hong Kong shop sign. The left hand characters read (upper) Hong Kong and (lower) Jin Yuan- the name of artisan. The two large characters read Zhi Li. I am not sure what kind of shop this came from but it has been suggested to me it is from either a lumber shop or construction company. In good condition although some of the red and gold lacquer has came off. Very rare these days to find anything, left from Old Hong Kong. H: 37cm/14.5in and L: 74cm/29in.

Early Northern Song bowl bowl, with broad lip around the mouthrim. The body is high fired with a greenish glaze. Excellent original condition, no damage. I tend to think this is trying to emulate either a Ding or Qingbai type. I have seen three of this type bowl recently and all have some out of Sichuan, so most likely from a Southern Kiln. D: 17.7cm/7in and H: 6cm/2.4in.

Large Yuan Dynasty Mei Ping jar with rare aquamarine glaze.

Southern Song Qingbai jar with glazed rim. As this was not meant to have a lid, brush pot is the best guess as to its original function. The incised floral and foliate decoration is quite exquisite. No damage and in excellent condition, there is an anomalous ring of different colored clay inside the body about mid way inside (may be seen in image 3#), I have take a couple samples and this was fired with piece as it is fused onto the surface and has crystalline ceramic structure...

Classic Song Dynasty celadon incised lotus saucer. As is painfully obvious this is damaged and repaired- in perfect condition, with this color, it would fetch several thousand dollars. This has nice even glaze and more than usual lotus petals carved on the outside. Please examine the enlargements carefully; what you see is what you get- an excellent study piece! D: 15.2cm/6.in and H: 3.8cm/1.5in.
