Very tastefully executed katana tsuba showing a Dragon in the Clouds motif. Attractive dragon with very fine detail contrasts very nicely with the plain surface of the majority of the tsuba. The front shows the dragon's head, one leg and tail. The reverse shows just one small body segment and about an inch away from that just two toes, supporting the idea the sometimes less is more...

Terrific full tang Samurai arrowhead. Head shows some darkening but no pitting so would polish out quite nicely although it looks fine as is. Full length is 20cm with the head being about 3.4cm. Very thick diamond shaped head would create a wound that would have difficulty healing. I would conservatively put the age at late Edo period but could easily be far older then 19th century. Very nice, hard to find item.

Very attractive Koro cover with tasteful openwork on copper base. The openwork features a 16 petal Kiku mon paired with an Ume or plum blossom. The two are directly portrayed together at the top so this pairing may have been part of a wedding gift. Nice, high dome gives this a full look. Opening measures out at 75mm from rim edge to rim edge. Overall height is 50mm and overall width is 90mm.

Interesting menpo. Below is an old ring mail skirt laced on. It looks like this is the correct configuration and intended use but the skirt has been laced on with a modern shoelace. Apparently a quick repair by previous owner, this is reflected in the price. Overall reasonably solid condition. The gold wire border on the skirt is frayed from age and there menpo itself has a crack on one side (Please see photos attached)...

Nicely done bone inlay tray. I would think that this is from southeast Asia. Good sized example at 47x33cm. There is a fair amount of surface wear due to age as well as missing inlay here and there. I do not repair items but I would think that the missing inlay could be filled in and of course there are always ways to fix surface wear. The wood is a mystery to me being quite dark and having a grain that looks almost like hairs. Pretty work on this piece and priced quite fairly.

Fine example of an antique, circa 1900 Kris knife/dagger. Very impressive workmanship in this attractive knife; See photos for details. I find one chip in the handle and some small denting to the tip end of the scabbard. Both are minor problems and more then reflected in the price.

This offering is a fine pair of menuki featuring a monkey riding a horse on one and the other looks to be a monkey chasing a horse, attempting to mount. There looks to be just a bit of smoothing in a tiny spot of one horse's leg. Other then that condition is terrific and detail is fine right down to the horses' abumi and even the braiding on the harnesses.
