A very interesting set of three soapstone seals dating from the Chinese Qing dynasty (1644-1912). Each seal is finely decorated with figures of Buddhist monks (maybe the same character on each stone). The first one seems to be losing his hat to the wind. The second one has caught it (or is letting it go away; having and not having at the same time), and the third one is sitting under a tree...

A very attractive incense burner made during the Chinese Ming dynasty (1368-1644). Curiously, it rests on its base rather than its three feet. The finely crackled glaze presents nuances of celadon green. The delicately incised motifs, though abstract, still seem to echo floral lines in a way that enhances the beauty of the jade-like gem looking vessel.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The incense burner is in very good condition; as can be seen on pictures 7 and 8, the...

There, master craftsmen, many of them of Korean origin, created one of the best ceramic ever mad...
