One of a kind quirky Thai pangolin amulet carved from bone with Khon script signifying this has some spiritual meaning.

Probably about 30 year old this is a lovely abstract interpretation of a Scaly Anteater. L: 13cm/5.2in.

Nice old Thai sticky rice “lunch box” in Lanna or Issan style. This is about 30 or 40 tears old with typical double wall construction. There are areas that have been lovingly repaired with some nylon cord. To the purist this may be seen as a distraction but I see time and an ethic where nothing was ever wasted- this was a valued very personal object. Next to it I have placed a contemporary one. Nowadays even this would be considered disposable; when you travel in the Thai count...

Quirky “chief’s” stool carved out very heavy Belian Iron Wood, from an Ibanic group. This is one solid piece except for the legs which have been inserted like dowels.

Iron wood is quite valuable these days, excellent condition with no cracks or checks.
