Confirmed unsigned Chanel necklace circa 1960 or 1970; I recently saw this same necklace with a Chanel hang tag with just the name in block lettering (no
season numbers or copyright symbols), which dates it to 1970 or prior. I had previously listed this necklace as a probable Chanel. Designed in the Indian
moghul style which was one of Chanel's main influences, with red and green Gripoix poured glass beads simulating carved rubies and emeralds, and dark
goldtone beaded drops and term...

Pair Chinese Ming Dynasty Painted Pottery Tiles - Ox / Moon
This fine pair of pottery tiles was made during the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644). They are made of a dense grey pottery and have been painted in black pigment. Each tile features, in high relief and in good detail, a long-horned ox, or cow, looking up at the moon, albeit in rather a strange pose, standing with its neck down but head turned upwards toward the sky. Mounted and lit well, these tiles make superb decorative items.Â
