Very rare, large lidded rattan basket from the Nung Rawang ethnic group of Northern Burma, Kachin State.

This is the oldest basket from this group I have ever found- conservatively at least 50 years plus. HL 42cm/16.5in and D: 27cm/10.6in. I hole...

Fine cowrie shell necklace from northwest Burma, probably Naga on a hand woven macramé cotton cord.

Please note, the two colored weave at the bottom of this piece, is an excellent example of the thoughtfulness to put into an every...

Jacket panel from the remote Miao Jiupang group from Jiahe County, Guizhou province, with purple embroidered pattern between the spaces in the tin decoration.

Acquired in Beijing about 20 years ago, these are the only examples I have seen outside of Guizhou, when I visited in 2001. This is semi antique circa 50 to 60 years old L; 44cm/17.5in (n...
