Good shell pendant made from a conch from the Ban Chiang Bronze Age Culture, Central Thailand circa 1500 to 2000 years old. The spiral pattern is reminiscent of our Milky Way Galaxy; in this you can see the synchronicity of the universe. D: 6cm/2.4in. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail.

Very rare small celadon Yueyao lugged jar from a Zhejiang Kiln, circa Five Dynasties/Early Northern Song. This type of ceramic was a precursor to Longquan ware. There is a firing crack and some fritting (caused by pockets of air trapped beneath the glaze during firing) on one side- noted in enlargements. D: 9cm/3.5in and H: 6cm/24in. I have added a cosmetic "enhancement" (filled the crack and applied gold leaf).

Beautiful antique lacquer box from the Southern Shan States circa late 19th CE to early 20th CE. This a complete set (which is rare in itself these days). The pattern though simple is exquisitely detailed. I have not seen this pattern documented anywhere and I have a few of this type all acquired in China in Yunnan, so I am wondering if it is possible it was made by the ethnic Shan (Daizu) living there. Some craquelure on the surface, as is expected and few minor chips at the botto...

One of kind, 19th century Lanna style ironwood coconut scraper, with antique inset glass eyes (they glow like a cat’s if you shine a light into them). This is the only one I have ever seen and probably the only one I ever will. Excellent condition and VERY heavy- L: 38cm/14.8in (without scraper) and H: 15cm/6in.

Very rare late 19th- to early 20th CE storage basket from the Bidayuh people of Sarawak. The lid is made from the skin of a sambar deer while the basket plaiting is all rattan with some bamboo slats on one side as a cushion; also the basket is lined inside with peeled wood. There are a few very minor repairs and holes here and there but overall I would consider this piece in very good condition given its age and environment. H: 57cm/22.5in and top D: 31cm/12.2in.

Nice vintage jadeite bangle circa 40 to 70 years old. Some tiny scratches on the surface but no cracks. Unusually small size perhaps made as a “symbolic protective” gift for an infant, but it seems unlikely they would have worn it as it is so thick and heavy. Nice spinach green highlights. Outer D: 5.5cm/2.18in, inner D: 3.27cm/1.29in and thickness 1.13cm/0.44in, weight 55 grams. Slightly compressed on the inside. I think this could be worn as a pendant.

Rare molded leather tobacco box from the Bai ethnic group in Yunnan, China. These were purchased in rural Yunnan at a Bai market, near Dali about 20 years ago. One can assume this craft is no longer being done with the availability of cheap plastic items as well as the migration of artisans to better paying jobs in the city. There are some tiny lacquer losses to the surface. W: 9.8cm/4.9in x H:5.5cm/2.2in & 8cm/3.1in x 6cm/2.4in.

Rare pottery storage jar with amber sancai type glaze, Ming Dynasty, circa Jiajing to Wanli reigns (1521-1620 CE)- based on dated similar shipwreck discovery pieces. This type of jar is generically referred to as a Martaban jar which was a port city in the old Pegu Kingdom in present day Myanmar. These were exported all over South East Asia, and although their origins are very diverse, i.e., Vietnam, Thailand as well as China this one is from a Fujian Kiln in Southern China. These ...

Rare collection (5 pieces) of pottery tobacco pipes used by the Rau/Brau people. These were acquired in Laos quite a few years. These were fired at the Yixing Kilns, in Jiangsu Province- the same place that made opium pipe bowls. These would date from late 19th century to first half 20th century- the ones with reddish clay being the oldest. They have some small chips consistent with old tribal pieces. As far as I know these pipes were unique to the Brau, and would today be consider...

Lovely carved nephrite pendant with classic “cat on a leaf” motif. This piece has been re-carved to appear as the cat is sitting on a peapod (peapods being one of the myriad of Chinese symbols wishing one to have many children), but was really done to hide the damage on the sides of a larger leaf. This sill retains it’s essence of “kittyness” as she reposes languidly on the leaf. L: 7cm/2.8in.

$650.USD One of kind, single supplementary weft embroidered panel, L: 4.63m/14.2ft and W: 36.5cm/13.8in, from the Tujia ethnic group in Guizhou, Southwest China. Its function is a bit of mystery so it being a sling wrap around baby carrier is my best guess. Originally I thought it might be a traditional wedding blanket that would be cut and sewn with three panels together but there is no border pattern woven into this piece as is typical. The pattern is quite unusual in that gre...

Good silk textile with tiger embroidery- all the threads are silk except the black. This was acquired in 1991 and has been sitting in a box ever since then. W: 69cm/27in x L: 149cm/58.5in. A great piece(IMHO)!
