Excellent, circa 1950s, 3 paneled weaving from the Zhuang ethnic group in Guangxi Zhuang, Southern China. The body is woven from very fine handmade cotton thread while the weft supplementary embroidery is done with silk floss threads (the small blue indigo medallions are done with cotton). Quite a heavy piece because of all the embroidery. L: 161cm/63in and W: 100cm/39in.

A timely and quirky soy brown glazed Korean War era chopstick holder with political slogans. The left hand column translates as “support your family and the Chinese military”, the right hand “oppose America, support Korea” and the top characters “increase productivity”.

Good woman’s skirt panel or apron from the Yi minority, approximately 40 to 60 years old. Old Yi textiles are quite rare due to Yunnan’s (the Yi cultural heartland) proximity to Thailand where they have been bought up and collected by Thai dealers since all the old “Hill Tribe” textiles in Thailand have long since vanished...

Nice set of copper boxes with blue enameled lids usde to keep a calligrapher’s seal and seal paste. The seal box has the famous Lantingji Xu - “Preface to Poems at the collected at the Orchid Pavilion”, written during the Eastern Jin Dynasty, incised on the back. This is considered to by many Chinese literati to be the greatest example of calligraphy of all time. These date are pre 1970 possibly much earlier and were made at the same workshop.

Beautiful Miao woman’s apron with black calendered cotton cloth, and green commercial (possibly polyester) border, and fine silk embroidered center panel with hand woven silk embellished apron ties, from Guizhou.

Nice vintage jadeite bangle circa 40 to 70 years old. Some tiny scratches on the surface but no cracks. Unusually small size perhaps made as a “symbolic protective” gift for an infant, but it seems unlikely they would have worn it as it is so thick and heavy. Nice spinach green highlights. Outer D: 5.5cm/2.18in, inner D: 3.27cm/1.29in and thickness 1.13cm/0.44in, weight 55 grams. Slightly compressed on the inside. I think this could be worn as a pendant...

Lovely vintage cricket box with blue underglaze Chinese landscape pattern. This was made in Jingdezhen in the 1970s/1980’s, emulating the Kangxi reign with apocryphal reign mark and wide unglazed footrim and inner rim. Please note last enlargement to compare to item #7003, these are fairly identical except for this one having a lighter cobalt blue (it’s all a matter of taste), probably more valuable as a pair than individually but will sell either way...

Good wedding blanket from the tiny Maonan ethnic group from Guizhou/Guangxi Zhuang. This has a supplementary warp silk embroidered phoenix and butterfly pattern against a red back ground on a handspun cotton foundation. The purple dye has bled into the blanket on the on the lower right hand section (noted in enlargements), which is why the price is low on this piece.

I acquired this at a charity sale at a Buddhist church, raising money for scholarships to underprivileged students in China. This piece is very well carved...
