Quirky Cizhou type, heavy, completely black glazed, waisted beaker from the Ming/Qing Dynasty. I am guessing that was used in a Chinese Apothecary, but this is just a best guess to its function. There is an intentionally drilled hole in the base (no it is not a TL test), which I can fill on request. Lovely thick glaze and aside from a couple of chips on the outside of the foot, in very good condtion. H: 13cm/5.1in- width at base : 8.7cm/3.8in and width at mouthrim : 11cm/4.3in.

Song Dynasty Jun ware brush shaper or brushwasher. This was originally the base of flower vase which was later reworked into a scholar’s object. The brown clay indicates this was fired in Henan and in my opinion is representative of the kind that was acquired for the Imperial Qing collection rather then the more typical bowls and saucers. The top surface has more discoloration and minor scratches which indicates, that the repurposing was done some time ago...

Rare high fired gray, hand sculpted relief, pottery wall tile- circa Song/Jin Dynasty depicting two mounted elephants engaged in battle. This has the original red, green and white pigments, which are still quite vivid after almost 1000 years. This is most likely from Shanxi Province. The depiction of “war elephants” is quite unusual, in that as far as I know, they were never used in China although some Southeast Asian kingdoms and India used them...

Rare antique bear’s teeth used by the Yao/Mien ethnic group in Guangxi Zhuang, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos during in Daoist ceremonies by Dao Guang priests. These would have had bells attached to them were used to “call in the spirits”. An example may be seen in Jess Pourret’s book: The Yao, plate 570, pg 207. These are all very old, and not from a bile farm (in case you were wondering). Dimensions in enlargements
