Chinese Western Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Attendant Figure (206 BC - AD 8)

This pottery model of a male attendant, or servant, was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). The figure stands with hands together under a robe. Note the presence of purpose-made holes above and below where the hands would be where a flag or weapon (?) would originally have been placed diagonally, and presumably made of wood so long since rotted away and lost. It is made from a relatively highly-fire...

Rare Chinese Han Dynasty Bronze Chariot Bell

This rare and interesting bronze bell was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It would have originally been fitted to a horse-drawn chariot, ringing constantly as the chariot went along. It still has its bronze ball inside the bell section so shaking it will make the same sound that was heard some 2,000 years ago ! The surface has corroded due to long burial and there are extensive malachite deposits.

Height 15 cm (6 inches). Condit...

Korean Koryo Dynasty Bronze Bowl, Spoon & Chopsticks

This bronze bowl and utensils were made during the Koryo Dynasty (AD 918 - 1392) but more specifically during the 13th century.

Originally its surface would have been brightly polished but it has, during its long burial, acquired a green patina. The chopsticks are square at one end and round at...
