Terracotta horse from the Wei period. The clay is gray. It is of very good quality. There are traces of red polychromy and there is still gilding on the rump. This gilding is composed of thick gold leaves that we call in French goldsmith's trade a "feuillard" it's thicker than the classic leaf to gild the furniture. In the past, I read somewhere that gilding was only applied on Wei or Tang terracotta on princely tombs. (To be verified)...

Dressing table in hard wood, which I think is zitan. The style of the pediments is strongly influenced by europe and can be found on many pieces of furniture from the Kien-Long period, they are very finely carved with plants and scrolls. The mortise and tenon joints fit together perfectly and once assembled the whole is solid and stable. 2 bronze hooks hold the 2 balustrades on the right and left side, these hooks seem to be original...

Bamboo Poutai. Very finely carved. The artist knew how to make all the emotions and characteristics of the character. The delicacy of the movement of the hands slightly retracted in a precious attitude, the joy of the laughing eyes wrinkled with enjoyment, the softness of the mouth. The sympathetic fatness of the neck...

I think it is an allegory, the small Mongolian wild hawk that is me down the Chinese fat goose. The victory of the yuan over the song. It is of exceptional quality, you can compare it with the known ones. The sculpture is beautiful, the curves are regular the finish is neat...

A superb Chinese porcelain dish from the Ching te chen kilns marked with the reign of Kien-long and of the period. High quality, perfect designs, well-fired enamels and very white porcelain. Perfect firing and design. Restaured chip and crack (visible on photo). Diameter about 22cm. It was not me who took the initiative to restore this dish. By transparency we can see that it is not a big chip. I can remove the restoration on request.

Copper censer embossed with gilded dragons. Repoussé in very thick copper of 5 dragons moving in clouds. Below the incised mark of Xuande in a gilded reserve. Partially gilded with mercury. The 2 handles also embossed copper, attached to the body by rivets. Currently, objects made of cast bronze are worth more than those made of "repoussé" copper under the pretext that they are more expensive to make, which is false. A cast bronze can be made entirely by a simple specialized workman, the a...

Unmarked bronze seal or scholar's weight? It represents a fantastic animal firmly camped on its legs. The artist has given it an interesting mischievous expression. It is in cast bronze, the finish is of the highest quality as well as the chasing. The perfection of the line of the hairs is the work of an excellent chiseller. The movement of the head which turns to the right makes the body tilt to the left while the tail compensates to the right only an excellent sculptor can make such a realism....

Extremely rare dish decorated in blue white, china late 18th century for export to Japan. The design is of high quality and the cobalt blue is perfectly fired. Deep blue color. The quality of the design is far superior to what we usually see on Chinese export porcelains and equals that of some imperial pieces. The decoration of the marli is particularly complex. The presence of 2 Japanese Mon allows us to think that it is a Japanese order. Probably a service for a wedding? Excellent condition. ...

A rare brushpot caved in coconut. On one side 1 temple surrounded by 1 dragon with a fish tail (Makara) and a fish.

Brush washer in green jade. Carved in the shape of a lotus plant. Two leaves serve as water receptacles, one large and one small, probably the large one for rinsing the brush and the small one for clean water. Finely chiseled and meticulously detailed. The brush washer rests on three points that are strongly off-center in a very elegant way. This decentering at the limit of the imbalance is a feat of the artist and gives a very specific elegance to this sculpture. Large about 15 cm. Fine co...

Chinese porcelain dish decorated in cobalt blue underglaze. Made for the European market.18° century. Very beautiful quality of design that is found only on some imperial porcelain (not on all) and almost never on export porcelain. Also this exceptional technique of pointillist to nuance the blue. The set of rocks is composed of 10 000 points. Seeing the buffalo on loan is a real pleasure, the movement of its tail, the position of the legs. No mistake. It is not a craftsman who painted this, it...
