There is an opening article of one thousand one hundred fifty eight characters embroidered on the hanging. One may wonder how much work has been spent making the item...

This is an interesting set of Japanese ? Chinese? lacquer wares, fully decorated outer boxes containing inner small boxes. The decorating techniques seem to me Japanese, and yet the decorative motifs are quite Chinese (such as the gourd, etc). Japanese export for Chinese market? Or Chinese work incorporating Japanese techniques? Anyway, the in-laid works are merticulously done and of very high quality. As I don't collect Japanese lacquer items, I have no idea about its use or value...

A Chinese flower-shape bronze censer with thick brown/blackish patina. It has a 4-character seal. Different people have different interpretation of this type of seal. My personal take is that this type of seal is a Republic fantasy seal. The censer weighs 1595 grams and its mouth opening is 11cm diameter. The condition is good, with dirt on the surface. It is hard to date it. My guess is that it is Republic, given that the patina shows age and the foot shows wear...

An interesting Chinese taste fan with painting on one side, calligraphy on the other side, and with carved bamboo sticks at both ends. The hand painted Bamboo scene is full of Chan/Zen spirit, dated 1886 or 1946. The outer bamboo sticks have a lovely smooth patina and are very finely carved and signed. Another interesting thing about the fan is that the motifs of the carved sticks match the gists of the painting and calligraphy. The painting is entitled with one of the 24 filiality stories (Mr...
