An absolutely exceptional and unique object, a pagoda roof in cast bronze, very heavy, gilded and inlaid with glass paste. If there are some rare examples of Chinese gilded bronzes inlaid with hard stones and some even rarer inlaid with transparent glass, to my knowledge we do not know of any other inlaid with glass paste. Here the glass imitates perfectly the white jade, the lapis lazuli, the ruby, the green jadeite emerald...

Shell mounted on a silver base. Chinese work made for export? From memory I seem to recall that a pair of identical cups were presented at the V&A in the 90s.

The whole is finely worked and chiselled. Beautiful finish. Extremely rare object. Very certainly end of the 18th century...

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...

Small box in chiseled and gilded copper alloy. Decor of a dragon cast in relief and chiseled on an incised "pearl" background. The sides of the box are in mixed brown and black laminated metals like the ribs of a wood. This technique (called Mokume in Japanese) would indicate that it is a Japanese work but some scholars believe that some of these sawasa were made in China during the reign of Kang-hi. A sawasa incense burner kept at the Shanghai museum has parts in mixed metals...
