Gray pottery lid or finial to a Tang Dynasty jar in the shape of a pagoda’s top. Buddhism did not really arrive in China until the late Han (more or less) and did not make a significant impact on mainstream Chinese culture until the Tang (if you don’t count the non Han Wei Dynasties). A simple an attractive piece. H: 12cm/4.8in and H: 10cm/4in.

Rare Qing Dynasty bottle vase with a straight neck and fine cracalature- there is one tiny glaze chip inside mouthrim noted in enragements. This may be Shekwan but I would generalize and say this from a Guangdong or South Fujian kiln. Very pretty glaze! H: 17.4cm/6.9in.

Good Qing Dynasty Jadeite oval plaque with beveled edge. This was most likely set into a Ruyi scepter or belt fastener. There are a few tiny chips on the unpolished edge as this side would be set into a mounting I consider them negligible. L: 5.7cm/2.2in, W: 4.cm1.6in and .5cm/.2in thickness.

Quirky glass ring emulating agate. This piece came from China but possibly is a trade object. I acquired this in a lot of other ancient pieces. A conservative dating to this is Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and guarantees it to this period. There is one crack as well as some bubble burst pitting on the surface. Outer D: 2.8cm and inner D: 1.9cm.

Two chalcedony pendants circa Warring States to Han Dynasty. I have been told by knowledgeable jade collectors these used as curtain weights; please see last enlargement for referenced dating to at least Han Dynasty from Sparkling Splendours: The Taoshi Zhai Collection. There are a couple of inclusions in the smaller white one and some deep staining on the larger one indicating that this was buried with a metallic object for quite sometime. Scale is in enlargement 6...

Ensemble of six Qing Dynasty red agate and carnelian pieces carved into babies, bats and a “foo” dog face. Originally these were meant to be sewn on clothing- possibly a woman's cap, now they are strung on a macraméd faux silk chord. tThe pieces tend to hang too close together in the center or may be worn as a choker- a possible remedy might be to insert a wire into the chord to stiffen it up a bit...

Old (100 years or more) leather belt from Tibet with 5 damascened silver patterns on iron fittings with complete buckle. There is some rust on the metal bits, maybe some Silvo polish on them will bring some of the shine back to the silver. All the pieces seem to be here except for a scabbard attachment. Total L: 118cm/46.5in. I bought this the Barkor bazaar in front of the Jokang in Lhasa almost 20 years ago; the leather is rough but serviceable.
