Rare blanket from the Khami/Mro ethnic group, Burma. This is made from all handspun cotton and natural dyes and is quite unusual in that it is composed of 5 panels. There is one small hole (noted in enlargements) and moderate staining. L: 1.4m/4ft 7in. W: 1.9m/6ft 2in. I bought this in the late 1990s so at least pre 1980 vintage weaving.

Good brush painting of a tiger by the artist Li Shou Lin dated 1978. Painted in the traditional style water color and ink mounted on silk and heavy paper. Unfortunately the mounting paper has suffered mold damage while the painting itself was affected in a minor way in the form of some discoloration, having said this if framed with new matting the flaw is very negligible. Please examine enlargements- will be mailed in a cardboard tube...

Unusual dated woman’s sarong from Burma. This is hand loomed with a dancing girl motif, 1974 date (coincides with the forming of Burma’s 2nd constitution under Ne Win) and traditional Burmese pattern. It appears to be made of a combination of silk and synthetic fiber- the yellow threads are silk while the rest are “something else”. Possibly part of a dance troupe costume for a commemorative performance, interesting piece, the only dated one I have ever seen...
