From Lopburi or early Sukhothai, Thailand, C13-14, this is an elegant bronze offering bowl in the shape of an open lotus blossom. This type of bowls showed a marked technological advance on the bronze vessels of Angkor. It has been turned on some kind of a lathe, giving it a polished appearance with an exquisite patina. Those that we have seen in Thai museums in Sukhothai and Khorat have had broken petals; this is the only one we know in perfect condition...

This late nineteenth century teapot was manufactured in Jingdezhen and enamelled either there or in Guangzhou. By that period in Thailand ware that previously had been utilized solely by the royal court was becoming fashionable with the newly-wealthy classes. This pot and its lid are decorated in a “trellis and flower” pattern in the Lai Nam Thong (gold wash) style...

This terracotta figure of a seated goddess dates to the early 3rd millennium BCE and comes from the Mergarh region of what is now Pakistan. She has large breasts and the head of a bird. Her hair is decorated with jewels and she wears elaborate necklaces around her neck. These figures clearly served a ritual function, and this one expresses a strange mixture of vulnerability and authority...

Bronze knife, with a handle showing a crowned Hanuman apparently biting the head of a bull (or calf), with a temple seal on the underside,Angkor Wat, Cambodia, C12.

Condition: Great. No sign of repair.

A bronze figure of Vishnu stepping over the ocean,Khmer, Angkor Wat period, C12-13. Most small images of deities are simple and static.

This head, possibly of Uma, would have been carved during the reign of King Udayadityavarman II (1050-1066), a great builder and patron of the arts. It is very delicately carved, with open eyes conveyed by simple outlines, sensuous lips and a strong slightly cleft chin. The overall impression is of a powerful but compassionate female face crowned with a ring inset with precious stones around her elaborately braided hair...

This is a very fine and imposing ceramic jar that shows clearly the ambition and the imagination of Khmer potters. The body is of tapered ovoid form with high shoulders that have decorative combing around them, and a small mouth. It would have been used for ceremonial purposes, and similar jars have sometimes contained hoards of treasure or treasured reliquary items. Despite their simple technical resources, the Khmer potters experimented widely with challenging forms and with glaze ...

Pedestal cups are quite common among first millennium BCE pottery from a variety of different cultures in mainland Southeast Asia. Perhaps it can be assumed that they served a ritual function, possibly in conjunction with the large bronze bells that are also found at many of these sites. The Ban Chiang examples from Northeast Thailand are particularly lively, with their freely-painted buff and brick red decorations...

This is an extremely rare iron black underglaze-painted porcelaneous dish, with a design of black flowers under a crackled, lustrous glaze,Kalong, Lanna kingdom, Northern Thailand, C15-16. Most Thai collectors refer to the motif as crows or ravens, but I’m fairly sure that these are in fact a very rare orchid that grows in the mountains north of Chiang Mai and very near to Wiang Kalong - impatiens psittacina, the parrot flower (“dork geyow” in Thai)...

A small stucco head in excellent condition, it dates to the 4th or 5th centuries CE and comes originally from one of the Buddhist monastic complexes in what is now Northwestern Pakistan or Eastern Afghanistan. It is very expressively modelled, conveying a sense of all-knowing compassion and gentleness. In this it is quite different from the run-of-the mill Buddhas which convey distance and power. Much of its original polychrome decoration remains. This is a very fine example. Height: 10.8 cm; ...

A large stucco head in very good condition, it dates to the 4th or 5th centuries CE and comes originally from one of the Buddhist monastic complexes in what is now Northwestern Pakistan or Eastern Afghanistan. The face is very skillfully modelled with arched eyebrows above heavy-lidded eyes, an aquiline nose and gently smiling lips. Like many of the best Gandharan stuccos it manages to convey both sensuality and the life of the spirit. Sadly, such pieces are much safer in private collections tha...
