A most unique carved horn stash box. It is from Indonesia. It is 8 1/2" tall. At least 35 years old. Wonderful style and design. Looks like a piece of modern art. It is a true piece of tribal art. Has natural cracks associated with carved horn, does not detract from look or value. Came from a very good collection of Indonesian art. I have never seen anything quite like it, it opens for storage of notes, medicines, herbs, etc.

This was and is a working marionette. You will have to re-attach some strings or restring the thicker white cords which are usually put on for sellling. Very nice hand carving and dressing. This marionette is probably 40 or more years old he has a good-cheerful feeling about him. He is 21" long. He has mouth that opens, he has nice articulated hands and pegged in real hair. Could be used for shows or as a collective decoration. A magical piece of art.

This is a real blown out chicken egg. It has been painted with watercolors and tempera and then laquered to protect it. It is a small masterpiece of Indonesian painting. Dancers and garudas decorate it. Every part of the egg surface if covered with a rich pattern of wonderful paintings. It is about 3" long and I will include a plastic stand.

Unique and beautiful describe this fantastical seahorse medicine container from Indonesia. Entirely hand made by using a complex lost wax process. It is a composition white brass or bronze like metal. It opens to hold medicine. Seahorse has human figures on it, to my understanding this is meant for protection. Piece is 5 1/2" long and heavy cast. A great piece of Folk art.
