A timely and quirky soy brown glazed Korean War era chopstick holder with political slogans. The left hand column translates as “support your family and the Chinese military”, the right hand “oppose America, support Korea” and the top characters “increase productivity”. Possibly used in a factory canteen this is the only ceramic I have ever seen from this brief period. The two crossed flags are quite unusual- on the left you have the standard PRC flag but the left is ...

Alabaster Shan Buddha circa 18th century. This has been left out in the sun and rain for the past 10 years so the surface has begun to degrade (a good lesson in the Buddhist fundamental of Anicca: the impermanence of all things). The head has been reattached. The base is hollow: the only example I have ever seen with this. H: 27cm/10.6in and W: 11cm/4.2in.

Nice old pre war shop sign from Hong Kong. The characters read Yuan Sheng Tai. It has been suggested to me this from a rice shop, although I am not sure- I am assuming the characters refer to the name of the owner. Very heavy hard wood, weighs about 8kg. H: 98cm/38.5in and W: 44cm/7.2in one chip on upper right hand corner. Lovely old Hong Mu wood with nice grain.

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.

Nice old red and black lacquered Cambodian Siri (betel) box container with foliate scroll pattern incised on the surface. Minor lacquer losses and restoration consistent with an antique piece. The art of Cambodian lacquer production has had a minor renaissance in recent years but this mainly done for the decorative art export market, items made for local village use this has pretty much died out after Khmer Rouge Era and advent of cheap Chinese plastic boxes. D: 23.5cm/9.2in and H: 10...

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 ...

Rare Mishmi parang or da from the Digaro subgroup Arunachal Pradesh, India. This piece is contemporary and was acquired by a friend who took part in an expedition doing Ethnobotanical research in this remote region which borders Tibet five years ago. It is constructed of a bone pommel, hand forged blade, wood open scabbard, held together with copper wire and a pigskin carrying strap. There are only 8000 people in this particular ethnic group, so this would be of interest to the specialis...

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...
