Exquisite inside painted glass crystal bottle depicting 7 tigers in a mountain landscape. This piece is dated 1987 which marks the height of contemporary Chinese Arts and Crafts as this coincides with opening up of the PRC and its eagerness to highlight the skill of their traditional artisans. Pieces from this period are much sought after by Chinese collectors since quality has since then declined. The quality of this piece may be recognized by realistic three dimensional details and that it i...

Phallic charm from Lamphun Northern Thailand- serendipitously enough, where they have an annual sausage festival. Originally these were worn by men at the waist and were thought to protect the wearer from any harm to his penis and in a more general sense they also are believed to bring luck especially in terms of “wealth generating or protection”, so a woman might be kept in your cash box to increase your cash flow or a woman might keep one in her purse to prevent it being “snatc...

Unusual pair of gray stoneware Cizhou funeral jars with white slip, clear glaze and appliqué human figures on the neck. Some of the glaze came off when trying to clean the dirt adhesions off so best to leave it alone for now. Soak it for a week or to in plain water and it might come of with a toothbrush under running water. Usually this style is found in a Qingbai glaze and these are the only ones I have seen in Cizhou. Possibly these were not meant to have lids as the mouth rim is ...

Unsigned acrylic/oil portrait of a woman worker acquired from a Hong Kong auction. I am assuming this was painted while China and Russia were still friends so would date this pre 1960. Good example of Socialist Realism (girl meets tractor) kitsch, W: 35cm/13.8in and H: 45.cm/17.8in.

Tang zhenmushou tomb guardian. These were interred in the vault and meant to subdue evil and protect the deceased. This fantastic creature, like the Western Chimera, were composite animals having the stripes and fierce countenance of a tiger and hooves like a deer. Most of the pigments appear to be original, with rare traces of gold applied to the sides of the chest and nose. The “spikes” on the side have been repaired with the probability of more on the body. H: 30cm/11.8in and W: (at ...

Six bronze rings from China circa pre Han Dynasty 200BCE. These appear to be excavated and were most likely trade items or primitive currency used by a non Chinese ethnic group like the Xiongnu or Ordos. D: 5.8cm to 6.5 cm weighing between 49 grams and 55 grams and seem to have a high copper content.

Old Timorese hard wood statue commemorating a departed loved one. These were kept in the “attic” of a home and were not meant to be free standing. I bought this from an old Australian collection which was collected in the 1980s in West Timor, so this dates 1950’s to 1960s. This carved from hard wood in good condition with minor checks in the wood. H: 26/9.8in and W: 7cm/2.8in.

Lovely Chinese basket most likely woven by the Zhuang or another of the many ethnic minorities in Guangxi Zhuang, China where I bought this over 20 years ago. This woven from split reed stalks and has a nice soft feel to it. This piece is quite old, 50 to 100 years (best guess). It has an unusual trapezoidal/oval shape and I like it for its sturdy simplicity. Minor unraveling of some of the weaves here and there but in very good condition given it age. H: 14cm/5.5in and L: 24cm/.5in...

Good circa early 20th CE pair of miniature Lanna Northern Thai Buddhas. The small one on left is amulet sized (H: 5.2cm/2in) with traces of gold and black lacquer and the larger one is a small votive image (H: 7.2cm/2.8in). I believe these to be cast in zinc.

Beautiful old classic Lao shoulder clothe, all natural dyes with hand spun silk threads. I picked this up on my first trip to Laos in the mid 1990s, at the Talat Sao Market, Vientiane and would date this to the 1970/80s. The fabric is incredibly soft and supple and may be worn (it is amazingly warm) as a scarf or hung as wall art. It has a few loose threads on the selvedge but otherwise in excellent condition with no holes or tears. W: 38cm/15in and L: 243cm/8ft. Free shipping via H...
