$90.00 

All eight undamaged figures in original shipping box. This set has all the charm of the crude export ware that was made in China about 80 years ago. The stamp paper on the box says "Made in Free China" it most likely was made on the mainland, but due to American bans on Chinese made products these early pieces were marked this way. The figures are crude, but they were made for export and meant to sell for very little money. What is very rare is that there are all 8, with original box. ...click for details

These red clay pieces were made to hold and serve foods.The valued clay is also used to make expensive and fine tea vessels. This beautiful goard shaped pot is decorated in a traditional style using a heavy onlay of enamel glaze. The shape is lucky and was probably meant to hold wine. It could hold wine, saki or flowers.

A charming elephant with a baby is the subject of this unusual snuff bottle. It is hand carved from Taga nut, a very hard durable fruit core that has been carved for centuries. This material undervalued due to the fact that is somewhat abundant, but it is probably the hardest natural material to carve. This great elephant is about 2 1/4" long. It has a bone top and metal spoon. Great details. About 20 years old.

Very colorful porcelain Temple Lions from China. Like the ones that guard the Palaces and Temples and Homes. This pair will protect any entrance. Porcelain with overglaze red-brown color and applied gold paint. Somewhat crude painting of colors but the overall look is very charming. Not new, no damage. 6" tall and somewhat heavy, so a little more for shipping. Great pair, female with pup and male with orb-ball.

Great sculpting and overglaze painting on this porcelain snuff bottle. Two boys piggy back. The topknot pulls out with a brass spoon. This bottle has an antique look, but I do not think it is more than 30 years old. The quality of the workmanship and painting make it a good addition to a collection. It is not marked and it is about 3 1/2" tall. No damage.

$44.00 

This is one of the best designs I have seen on a cloisonne egg. It has four dragon masks in the archaic style. Old cloisonne with colors that are fired in glass fused to copper or bronze base. The color comes to the surface, not like newer cloisonne that has layers of clear over color, or worse yet resin. It is about 2 3/4" tall and it will come with the gold painted wood stand you see in pictures.
