please write 

Amber is very old, as we show below. The pieces in this pendant were purchased in Beijing. A 14 K gold frame and clamp were made to order in Beijing. [The chain is only for illustrative purposes.] Amber is "produced" from the sap of trees and must stay in the ground for centuries before it gets the glow that these two pieces have. On Amber: Amber, which is in fact a fossil, is often held in the same class as semi-precious stones such as turquoise and jade because of its ornamenta ...click for details

This is very attractive North China Deer. It was carved by an unknown carver in Hebei (Beijing is surrounded by Hebei) and brought to market here. The wood is called wu-mu in Chinese, this is ebony in English. Ebony is used rather sparingly in China for smaller objects (we have seen it in rulers). This statue is rarely seen in Chinese wooden art.

This is a glorious burl frog toggle: it was done in late Ming early Qing China. The original boxwood design has probably been all worn off. What remains is a proud frog with copper eyes sitting in a basket. We suspect when first made, all the basket was carved, the frog had warts. Today: the basket weaving has worn off. If there were warts they have been worn down due to constant handling. It is now smoothe and gentle to touch. It is an elegant piece. The bronze eyes are staring at you. The ...click for details
