Quirky Chinese milk glass ink pad with lid. This piece was manufactured by the Shanghai Jin Cheng Industrial Arts Corporation and dates circa Republic era (1920s). 10cm/4in x 7cm/2.7in x 3.2cm/1.2in. This has few chips on the edge and still serviceable, actually it is quite amazing that this has survived in this good condition at all given the tumultuous events of the times.

Ensemble of very old beads, I found these in a small shop in Phrae, Northeast Thailand a few years ago. The green mottled beads are late Qing Dynasty Peking glass, the brown glass tapered tube bead emulating agate was probably made for the Funan or Chenla Kingdoms as I have agate beads from the same period which are pretty much identical, the white bead with orange splash is at least early Qing...

Fine and rare Ming Dynasty, emulating white Jade, belt fastener made of glass. There are a few tiny chips but they are too small to photograph. Glass artifacts in good condition are more difficult to find than Jade given its fragility. In the center there is a “Shou”-Chinese longevity character, surrounded by cloud scrolls and a meander pattern on the perimeter. L: 6cm/2.3in and W: 4.6cm/1.8in. See last enlargements for reference from Simon Kwan’s: Early Chinese Glass, pgs...

Quirky glass ring emulating agate. This piece came from China but possibly is a trade object. I acquired this in a lot of other ancient pieces. A conservative dating to this is Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and guarantees it to this period. There is one crack as well as some bubble burst pitting on the surface. Outer D: 2.8cm and inner D: 1.9cm.

Exceptionally rare pair of semi opaque white glass perforated discs from the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE). These originally were meant to be a cheap substitute for white jade funeral items, but given the fragility of glass they are more uncommon. The small (D: 4.4cm/1.8in) one has a fairly recent hairline crack and the large (D: 5.8cm/2.3in) one has some minor old chipping on the edge.

Colorful and quirky glass bangle fragments drilled and reworked into beads (two strands). These seem to have traveled far and wide. The strand without the small beads I bought in HK about 5 years ago and the other was purchased in Bangkok at about the same time. These originally came from Iran circa 6th CE - 7th CE which would make them late Sassanian Empire or early Islamic Era...
