There is some warpage to the lid as well, but it is the original one. D: 12.4cm/4.9in and H: 10.4cm/4.4in

The style, quality of weaving and colors indicate a much older piece (circa 19th century). W: 158cm/62in and L: 151cm/59in. This has classic Buddhist imagery- the central floral medallion represents the Buddhist Wheel of Law (Darmachakra)- 8 spokes symbolizing the Eightfold Path, next to it are a deer and trees which repre...

Han Dynasty lead green glazed “out house toilet”. I imagine even in the afterlife you’ll still need one of these.

In excellent condition, no damage other than where it was broken off the compound wall which you can’t see since it’s on the bottom anyway. This item will clean up quite nicely with a good soaking in plain old water and a soft bristled toothbrush should you w...
