Two bolts of P'ulo-thigma wool cloth. I bought these in the Bakor market outside the Jokang Temple in Lhasa in 1996. The one with the crosses is hand woven wool with some aniline dye. The crosses look to have been stamped on (dimensions: 18ft x 8.5in). The one with the circles is also handwoven wool, probably natural dye and the round medallions have been resist wax (tie dyed) on in the traditional fashion (dimensions: 16ft x 9.in)...

Very fine old wool pangden cloth- all hand spun wool and mostly natural dyes. This piece is an exceptionally large piece consisting of 5 panels, circa 40 to 50 years old. The weave is quite tight and heavy and would make an excellent small blanket or throw rug. In the past these were worn by married women, but these days they are a fashion accoutrement for the modern Tibetan girl...

Rare and unusual shallow bowls enclosed in pewter. The original blank dishes were imported from Japan and then decorated in Hong Kong. By the 1980s this trade died out due to rising property costs as well as the transitioning of the Hong Kong manufacturing sector to China. This pair is in excellent condition and perfectly matched with floral panels and medallions. These are also the only examples I have seen jacketed in pewter. D: 17cm/6.9in and H: 4cm/1.6in. Dated to 1970’s.
