Classic buff pottery ox from the Tang Dynasty- a very sturdy and well sculpted piece. This would clean up very nicely with just a soak, a rinse and possibly a soft bristled tooth brush. I left the mud on because it shows the traces of mineralized plant roots and some collectors like that “in situ” look. Excellent condition, no damage. Can clean if any buyer wants me to but this will result in the loss of the white pigment under the dirt. L: 16cm/6.2in and H: 11cm/4.2in.

Early 20th century fragment of large Inner Mongolian rug with repetitive floral pattern on a grid. A very stunning piece, at least to me, I think it looks nicer without its original border. The double selvedge indicates the edges were done locally, in Baotou rather then somewhere else. Some brown discoloration in a couple of places, but no holes or other damage. L: 1.93m/6.3in and W: 67cm/26.5in.

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. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail.

Very fine and rare underglazed blue and white porcelain jar with lid, from the Southern Yunnan Kiln of Yuxi. This type of ceramic is a fairly recent discovery, the first pieces having hit the market around 2003, although the earliest dating to having found this kind of ware was 1973. The best dating I can give this given its simple design would be late Yuan to early Ming, circa the 12th century, although ceramics from this area have been produced from the Song to Late Ming...
