The Chinese porcelain dish has a border of repeating ruyi. The centre of the dish has an abstract motif that might represent a lotus. The dish was made for the Japanese where such pieces were used and much appreciated in the tea ceremony, at a time when the Japanese porcelain industry was in its infancy.

Approximately 14 cm diameter. No cracks or restoration, just a couple of minor mushikui, “worm eaten edge” that is a signature of these wares.

The extensive village and river scene has many figures, I counted 20. It has a nice patina and looks ‘dry’ and untouched. I resisted the temptation to oil and then wax polish it but that is something you might consider. 19th century.

Approximately 18 cm high, 15.2 cm across the oval. The pot has some largish age cracks but none that go to the inside. There is a small hole in the wall where the carver has gone too deep, you can see this in one of the detail photographs.

Buddha is seated in meditation on a double lotus base. It has a very attractive genuine patina. The surface of the base is formed from an old Japanese mirror. I have seen this recycling of mirrors before, they sometimes are found forming the bases of bronze hibachis.

Manufactured specifically for export to Europe sometime during the first half of the 18th century. The cutout, rather small in this case, is to allow the bowl to fit comfortably under the chin when the barber is wielding the razor. Barbers at that time also provided a service to the medical profession by bleeding patients and these bowls are sometimes called 'Bleeding Bowls'. The two holes in the rim, pierced before firing in the kiln, are for suspension cords so tht the bowl could be displayed ...
