This set of 5 matching porcelain dishes with flying cranes pattern dates from the late 19th through the early 20th Century in China.

Each dish measures about 6 1/8 inches in diameter.

The dishes are in generally good condition with minor edge roughness or rim frits as often found with this type of delicate thin porcelain.

The pattern of six flying cranes is transfer printed rather than hand painted: a type of detailing that became popular in the 19th century although it originated slightly earlier than that. In China it was used in the early 20th Century (Republic Period) and it's use ended about WWII.

This antique worked silver and coral pendant with hanging loop dates from the late 19th to early 20th century in Tibet or Nepal.

It measures 53 mm long by 15 mm in diameter.

It consists of a piece of natural, undyed red coral covered with two ends of finely worked silver. This is .900+ pure silver and guaranteed as such.

It weighs .98 troy ounces (about 30 grams).

The black spots in the coral are natural imperfections in the stone and do not detract from the stone. Quite the opposite-they help to verify it's authenticity.

This ceramic elephant on a stand measures 6 3/4 inches tall by 6 inches wide by 3 inches in depth.

It dates from the first half of the 20th century.

Although the glaze is identical to certain Chinese glazes, it may be American or European in origin.

It may also be Chinese, but we don't believe so, based on it's design.

It is in excellent condition with the exception of two minor flecks to the glaze and two holes drilled in it's base. It may have been filled with sand at one time to serve as a bookend. If there was a mate to this piece, we've never seen it.

It is a charming little piece, with legitimate age - at least 75 years.

This Japanese bronze handled mirror measures about 8 inches in diameter (21cm) with an extended handle which increases the full height to about 12 inches or 30 centimeters(cm).

It dates to the late Edo Period or Early Meiji period ( about the middle of the 19th century (1840-1860).

It is signed in the left portion of the front. It also has birds flying over churning waves in the ocean.

It still has most of it's silver ovrlay on the two large Kanji marks on the front. It also has remnants of it's silver on the reverse or "Face" of the mirror.

Bronze mirrors were introduced into Japan from China and Korea about 300 BC - AD 300.

At first they had a religious function and were regarded as symbols of authority.

The Japanese soon learned to make their own mirrors using lost-wax casting and decorated them with Japanese or Chinese designs.

By the Nara period (AD 710-794) mirrors were made for everyday use and used designs such as plants and animals to symbolize good fortune.

From the Kamakura period (1185-1333) a design showing Hôraizan (the Chinese 'Island of Immortality') became popular.. More new designs and the first handled mirrors appeared in the Muromachi period (1333-1568).

During the Edo period (1600-1868), mirrors decorated with lucky symbols or Chinese characters were given at weddings. Mirrors became larger as hairstyles became more ornate; some mirrors in Kabuki theatre dressing-rooms were up to fifty centimetres across and were placed on stands. The faces of mirrors were highly polished or burnished, with itinerant tinners and polishers specializing in this work. Since the mirror, together with the sword and the jewel, were symbols of Imperial power, mirror-makers were deeply revered and often given honorary titles such as Tenka-Ichi ('First under Heaven'). However, this title was often misused and was officially prohibited in 1682. Bronze mirrors were replaced by glass mirrors after the Meiji Restoration (1868).
