This is a fine purple-splashed Junyao jar with two small strap handles, Jin or Yuan dynasties, China (C12-13). As expected, it is heavily potted and it has a beautifully thick blue glaze. There is a purple splash to the front with the glaze endling unevenly at the foot and revealing the rich red stoneware body at the base. At the upper rim the glaze has thinned and been altered to a brownish green colour which is also found on the two handles. Ex: I.M...

The head of the dragon is carved very expressively This is an extremely rare censer form that probably derives originally from a bronze shape; more examples have been found in bronze than in ceramics. The Yueyao kilns were the first in China to develop a porcellaneous body and glaze...

Every collector should have some of these Ming dynasty pottery burial figures in their collection. They are such a good bargain and they tell us so much about Chinese culture. Whereas the Tang dynasty figures are always rather theatrical, these Ming attendants are resolutely realistic. They remind me of the bored professional mourners one still sees occasionally at funerals today...

This is a very unusual and rare bowl that shows the experimental nature of the northern kilns in the late Tang and early Song. Very few examples of underglaze paintings are known from these kilns at that time period. The bevelled trim to the footrim is similar to that which may be seen on the better Yaozhou production...

Bronze mirrors were thought to offer protection against evil spirits. The mythological patterns cast into them have very specific, ritualistic functions. This exquisite small example is typical of the very powerful mirrors that were produced in the second half of the Eastern Han. Its borders consist of a band of sawtooth pattern, and a hachured ring, encircling a dramatic creature - a clawed, one-horned tiger (Longhuwen) in a mystical form (hence the name Long hu, meaning dragon-tiger)...

It has a short neck and everted rim. The marks of old plant growth can be found close to the bottom. It is very unusual to find one of these jars in such a fine state of preservation. This one is somewhat larger than the norm...

This is a superb and rare Yaozhou ware russet porcelain vase, brown glaze over a grey-white paste, Northern China, Song or Jin dynasty, 960-1234. Russet- or persimmon-glazed wares from Yaozhou were probably first made to imitate dingyao pieces, but the yaozhouyao glaze fires with a uniquely metallic lustre, as in this example. The paste on the footring and the unglazed base has fired to a rich creamy-colour, which is quite common with these brown-glazed wares...

This is an extremely rare iron black underglaze-painted porcelaneous dish, with a design of black flowers under a crackled, lustrous glaze,Kalong, Lanna kingdom, Northern Thailand, C15-16. Most Thai collectors refer to the motif as crows or ravens, but I’m fairly sure that these are in fact a very rare orchid that grows in the mountains north of Chiang Mai and very near to Wiang Kalong - impatiens psittacina, the parrot flower (“dork geyow” in Thai)...

This is a possible Jiajing piece as it has a purple undertone and no black spots, which was common for Jailing porcelain (During the Jailing period, the formula that was used to produce blue and white porcelain was generally low in iron and manganese which produced an undertone of purple). Inside this lovely bow, it depicts a scholar wearing high hat on a deer which is called “Lu Gao Sheng”. “Lu Gao Sheng” are phonograms of “deer”, “High, tall” and “To raise”. On the outside...

Snuff was introduced into China from the West in the seventeenth century and its popularity quickly engendered a new art form, the snuff bottle. This exquisite little ovoid bottle is very well made from layered opaque white/pink/white glass finely carved into an elaborate surface of lotus petals with a coiled lotus stem forming the base rim. The term Sandwich Pink is rather banal for such a beautiful object; the Chinese name, Taohua Dong, meaning frozen peach blossom, seems much more appropriate...
