Nice old storage basket from the Lahu ethic group, Northern Thailand. This has a tough double layered weave with the outer wall made from rattan and the inner wall of bamboo strips. Lahu baskets are held in high regard by the other tribes in the area and were sold or traded to them. This is a genuine old tribal piece and not a tourist piece made for the home décor market. Acquired in 1990, and has been in storage since them a reasonable estimate on age would be 40 to 50 years old...

Lovely Chinese Neolithic pottery jar with lugs and concentric circles design. This piece has some breakage on one lug and the motif is faded on one side but it still it has charm and presence- the design is very unusual and rarely seen on Chinese pottery.

Rare pottery jar with impressed chord pattern and lugs- please note the quirky applied decorative elements at the top of the piece. This is quite an unusual feature which I have never seen before. The Qijia culture existed in Gansu and Qinghai Provinces from 2200-1800BCE, (4000 year old =/-) and is considered one of earliest bronze making cultures. So a piece from this period represents the transition into the Bronze Age, from Neolithic in Chinese history. This jar is in perfect original c...

Stunning vintage stoneware bowl with a "Guan" glaze, this has a deep and varied, "ice crackle" cracquelure, the signature hallmark of this glaze. Caused by the application multiple of glazes and contraction, during cooling, this is technically very difficult effect to achieve. This piece is in excellent condition with two minor glaze frits in the cavetto which occurred during production and an old piece circa 40 years or older. One of the 5 Classic Ong wares, it has been emulated since...

Large early Islamic Central Asian, Persian polychrome pottery bowl decorated with lively composition of animals - Circa 9/10th CE. Large repair (noted in last enlargements) and typical fritting. The red clay body was dipped in a white slip with decorative brown glaze- immersed in a final clear glaze to prevent the other colored glazes from running. The apparently random use of turquoise colored glaze is quite attractive. Fired at a moderate heat. D: 25.5cm/10in and H: 7cm/2.8in.
