80.00 Quirky big round ball of green glass; possibly sand cast- this would have been used to make a Buddha image, from Lanna culture, Northern Thailand. In the 1950s the Japanese started exporting mold cast glass images to Thailand and Laos so this practice died out around then. There is a Buddha in there waiting to be realized. Looks like one of moons of Jupiter. Weight 210grams D: 5.5cm/2.2in.

Ten jade perforated untreated Jadeite discs, circa late 1880 to 1950. These retail for about $30.USD each in a Hong Kong. I acquired from a Hong Kong jade dealer going out of business due to the ever increasing rents here. Average diameters are between 2cm and 2.5cm and thickness between 2mm and 4mm. These were imported into Hong Kong during the 1980s when local dealers could buy direct from Chinese government owned Arts and Curios Department (usually by the kilo)...
