Large Yuan Dynasty Mei Ping jar with rare aquamarine glaze. There is one firing crack on the side which I can fill with ceramic putty that would mitigate the visual impact, otherwise excellent condition. As my photo software tends to flatten images somewhat I have included one of it lying on the side. H: 29.5cm/11.5in and D: 21cm/8.2in.

Good Kayan Orang Ulu gawai rice festival ceremonial mask, circa 40 years old, from Sarawak. I bought this piece in Kuching, Sarawak in 2003. This mask would be held by the teeth on a piece of rattan on the inside. Used only twice a year for rice planting and harvesting festivals (gawai), these gatherings were usually a good excuse for a party and celebration to encourage the spirits to ensure a good harvest. H: 25cm/9.8in and W: 16cm/6.2in.

D: 23.5cm/9.2in and H: 10...

D: 13.5cm/5.3in and H: 8.2cm/3.2in.

Exceptionally rare baby blanket from the Tujia weavers of Longshan County, Hunan Province, China. I have been looking for one of these for years and this is the first complete blanket I have ever found, albeit the lower two border panels come from a different piece. This incorporates the unique white tiger motif (see enlargement #3) which is believed to give the baby protection. The there is a repair to the border panel and the central cotton panel has some holes and has unraveled at the...

Fine old Shan Burmese lacquer box, circa early 20th century with one tray and depicting monkeys playing in foliate background. This piece is a real classic beauty (IMHO). There are a couple of repairs at the edge of the rim noted in enlargements as well as craclature on the surface and nicks around the foot. H: 19.2cm/7.6in and D: 22cm/8in. Please note I put a grain of rice in the last enlargement to highlight the finely detailed work.

Good circa late Republic to Early PROC, bell shaped inkstone with poem by the Tang Poet, Zhang Ji inscribed on the back. "The old moon is going down/ And the crows make a ruckus/ The world is covered with frost/ There are maples on the riverbank/ And the lights of fishing boats/ Drift with the current/ I fall into a sad sleep/ from the monastery on Cold Mountain/The sound of the bell/ Reaches the guest boat at midnight." The calligraphy is quite good on this and the stone is still ...

Stunning bronze sword handle from the Dian Kingdom that paralleled the Han Dynasty. Judging from the heavy triangular pommels and spikes near the blade, these were designed for close quarter combat that would look right at home in a fight scene out of Game of Thrones. This has a classic azurite patina with traces of the original iron blades. The Dian were a fierce and independent kingdom living in the vicinity of Dianchi Lake in Yunnan Province which chronologically paralleled the Warr...
