Lovely Dian Kingdom chalcedony “nipple bead” circa 400 BCE to 100 BCE, with “moonlike” translucence. These button like ornaments were unique to this culture, they were used in decorating bronze buckles, funeral shrouds as well as clothing and strung as beads. Quite rare these days- I haven’t seen a “fresh” pieces on market for several years. The Dian were a fierce and independent kingdom living in the vicinity of Dianchi Lake, Yunnan Province which chronologically pa...

Very fine polished shouldered stone axe from the late Neolithic Period, found in Nan Province Thailand near the Lao Border. I acquired a collection of these a couple of years ago and have been holding this one back since was the best of the lot. The stone is very hard and cannot be scratched on the polished surface with stainless steel and is in very good condition with only a couple chips on the softer part of a still serviceable cutting edge. This piece feels good in the hand and is ...

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. Free shipping Hong Kong R...

Late Qing Dynasty large “lock” charm. Incised on one side, are the usual characters of wealth, health and longevity and on the other side “together forever” is inscribed, which is uncharacteristically romantic and sentimental for Chinese charms wishing the owner for a long and happy relationship. This would make a great gift for a lover or spouse. Good condition with a couple of “flea bite” sized chips and naturally occurring inclusions. L: 9.5cm/3.7in, W: 6.1cm/2.4in and t...

Circa Yuan to Ming Dynasty grayish white heat treated “Smokey jade”, nephrite jade with sinuous archaic Chilong carved on three sides. The hole is new and the ends have been reworked at a later date. As the faces of the Chilongs have been cut off on one end, I am assuming that this was originally longer and then cut to hide some chips or damage. As this carved on only three sides I think this was paper weight and may have been used in a Chinese Traditional Medicine Shop as a weight...

Fine old Chinese nephrite jade, circa Tang Dynasty or earlier. This piece has been crisply cut and polished on all sides and edges, the tiny holes drilled front and back indicate that this piece was possibly a garment fastener which was held on with either gold or silver wire.

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 C hinese 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.
