Rare Buddhist votive terra cotta plaque, circa 10-12th century, most likely Mon culture. Very interesting iconography with the Buddha seated on a lotus supported by two Brahma (Nandi) bulls. He is surrounded by a dotted nimbus on his torso, with a flaming one around his head and seated beneath a Bo tree. Condition as pictured, the facial features are still legible, on the back, lines have been carved to represent the leaf of a Bo tree as well as an incised but illegible inscription...

Collection of 5 silver alloy loop earrings with coiled ends from Cambodia. These are excavated pieces with nice patina circa 200/300 years old. I have seen heavy classic Khmer period bronze earrings in the same basic shape but these seem more recent. These were acquired in the Aranchaprathet border market in Thailand opposite Poipet, Cambodia. Two have flaws noted in last two enlargements. Diameter on the largest one is 3.1cm/1.2in and the smallest one is D: 2.1cm/.82in...

Fine old Shan Burmese lacquer box, circa early 20th century with one tray and depicting monkeys playing in foliate background. This piece is a real classic beauty (IMHO). There are a couple of repairs at the edge of the rim noted in enlargements as well as craclature on the surface and nicks around the foot. H: 19.2cm/7.6in and D: 22cm/8in. Please note I put a grain of rice in the last enlargement to highlight the finely detailed work.

Exceptionally rare Burmese 15th/16th century bowl, with lead and tin glazed green underglazed floral pattern.

Large Khmer pedestal jar circa 12th century with dark brown glaze. This piece has a large restoration to the top - normally the neck would be much longer but this has taken the piece from another, of the period jar, and attached it to this. Overall the glaze is excellent on this piece and has retained its elegance. H: 30cm/12in and D: 23cm/9in. This piece is quite heavy and weighs 3.5kg.

Very rare and previously undocumented Burmese jar with heavy cream ”moon white” glaze. I have no idea what the original purpose for this jar was, perhaps it was an oil lamp as there are wide set lugs as well as holes in the splayed out foot to fasten it down to something. This is one of the very few Burmese pieces I have seen in perfect condition (except for one bare spot on one of the lugs) there is no restoration...

Fine and rare pair of “rice gods” carved from durable iron wood (Belian) from the Kayan people of Sarawak. These were kept in the rafter in rice storage containers as protective spirits to guard the harvested padi. Nice old matched male and female (mother father) pair circa late 19th to early 20th century. Orignally these were on the end of a long stick that was stuck in the rice, but these have been cut to make them appear more “sellable”...
