A JAPANESE SHINTO GONG, SIGNED SEI KYO YOSHIDA ZO

A large and heavy double-sided bronze gong in the form of a vertical drum, perhaps intended for use in a Shinto ceremony. Each part of the gong and stand has been made using the lost wax technique and this has led to the use of much fine decoration on the surface.

A CHINESE BAMBOO OPIUM PIPE WITH JADE DAMPER, 19TH CENTURY.

The white metal fitting looks complete but must have been loose and a former owner has bound it with twine. This could be removed and a modern adhesive used to make a better fixing. The ends are ivory.

Approximately 56 cm long...
