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...

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.
