Himalayan Antiques



$650 

Burl wood is especially favored by Tibetans for their tsampa bowls. This one is especially well-figured.

It is especially difficult to assign a date to an items whose form has been so consistent for generations. We've dated this to "pre 1900" but it is likely very much older.

Himalayan Antiques



$1,850 

Ringas come in many styles and qualities. This embroidered one is of a quality not often found. Dating from the 18th century it might have been made in China for the Tibetan market or in Tibet itself. Ringas like this were often displayed on statues rather than having been used by lamas. That might account for the excellent condition.

For comparison see plate 73 from Treasures of Tibetan Art from the Newark Museum. ...click for details

Ganesh Antique Ritual Bell (Ghanta) from Nepal
 click for details

Himalayan Antiques



$450 

Bell ringing is an act of daily worship for both the Buddhists and Hindus of Nepal. With a figure of Ganesh under a canopy of five nagas it is safe to assume that this bell is from the Hindu community. The wear and patina are consistent with great age, though it is extremely difficult to date metals with any certainty.

The bell is 4" in diameter at the base and is 9" in height. It is in very good conditio ...click for details

This stupa only changed hands once before we purchased it and several similar ones. It was said to be part of a collection of 108 stupas belonging to a rural monastery in Tibet close to the border with Nepal and to be over 200 years old.

It stands 10 inches (25 cm.) high and is 3-1/2" (9 cm.) square at the base. There are traces of white paint overall. There is an age crack on the bottom right side.
