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...

Fine Chinese Neolithic Machang Phase Painted Pottery Jar (c. 2300 - 2000 BC)

Rare Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Buddhist Pottery Zodiac Jar

This interesting pottery jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and has been been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province. It is made from a fairly high-fired grey pottery and is quite wide compared to other known similar examples. The yellowish-brown surface colour is due to the iron-rich Yunnan soil.

Strips of clay have been applied to the outer wall to f...

Large Chinese Yuan / Early Ming Dynasty Glazed Stoneware Jar / Vase

This superb looking stoneware jar was made during the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) or the early part of the following Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). It is heavily-potted with a finely "ribbed" body and coated in a thick very dark brown / black glaze. It has a particularly attractive form with its wide round body, narrow neck and flared mouth. The flat base remains unglazed, revealing the sandy-coloured stoneware body.

Very Rare Chinese Song Dynasty Jar with Stand & Cover (Dragon Chasing Pearl)

This stoneware jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 -1279). We have had a few similar "dragon" jars over the years but it is extremely rare to see such a jar with not only a cover, but a cut-out bowl in which it stands. We have known that such items existed as there is one illustrated in a Chinese museum book (see above for reference). 

Such jars as this with an applied dragon around its shoulder are f...
