A thinly potted Chinese export soft-paste porcelain saucer dish made specifically for export to the West during the Qianlong period. It is possible that this dish has been given only a coating of white firing clay, known as huashi or 'slippery-stone' rather than being true soft-paste. Both techniques were used to enable much finer painting with greater detail and on thinly made pieces it can be difficult to tell...

Approximately 22.4 cm high, 16.5 cm diameter. The vase is substantially potted and weighs 1457 gm...

A Japanese Imari barber's bowl, circa 1690 ~ 1730. Also known as a 'bleeding' bowl after the then popular medical procedure of letting blood to relieve symptoms. Incidentally, barbers offered both services at the time. These bowls were made to order in Arita and were for export to the West. The rim has two holes, pierced before firing, to allow the bowl to be hung on the wall when not in use.

A very similar bowl but lacking the green enamel is illustrated in Shibata, No...

A good Chinese agate snuff bottle carved to represent a ribbed gourd. The material is not so yellow as it appears under my photographic lamps, it more like beeswax in colour and exhibits all of the natural colour differences and striations natural to the stone. The ribbing finishes at the base leaving a concave foot, now covered with a collectors inventory number. The stopper is stained bone. This is a genuine old bottle, nicely hollowed.

Approximately 6.3 cm high. Perfect condition...

A Chinese glass snuff bottle made to imitate agate. Though simple in appearance these bottles were very difficult to make as the glass had to be first striated and then given darker patches whilst molten, before blowing to form the bottle. A genuine old bottle. The base has an old collectors label mistakenly identifying the bottle as agate.

Approximately 5.8 cm high. Fine condition. No stopper.
