Though simple in appearance these bottles were very difficult to make as the glass had to be first striated and then given darker patches whilst molten, before blowing to form the bottle. A genuine old bottle. The base has an old collectors label mistakenly identifying the bottle as agate.

Approximately 5.8 cm high. Fine condition. No stopper.

The design of butterflies and melons is seldom encountered on Chinese porcelain, found only on a few Qianlong pieces. This shaped dish I feel is from the early 19th century but the ‘orange peel’ surface of the porcelain is often found on Qianlong export pieces. Like the Qianlong painted melons these have a pronounced ‘spotting’ in either famille rose or gold enamel on the fruits. 

Approximately 20.6cm across, 6.4 cm high. Perfect condition with no frits, chips, cracks or rest...

A Chinese double overlay snuff bottle. 19th century. An opaque white glass bottle is encased in sapphire blue glass and then encased again in white. These two layers are then cleverly carved away to leave a design of an ancient fisherman attended by his young apprentice. Double overlay bottles are uncommon.

The clear glass stopper is not original but it seems to suit the bottle.

Approximately 7.5cm high. Fine condition.

Please study the photographs.

A JAPANESE EXPORT DISH, LATE 17TH CENTURY.

This fine dish is decorated with designs taken from Ming Chinese Wanli 'Kraak' wares and came about as a result of a disruption of Chinese production during a period of unrest. Dutch traders who found their Chinese trade stopped resorted to ordering from Japanese makers. The Japanese versions of these Kraak style pieces are usually thicker than the very thin Chinese Kraak wares and this has ensured their survival in often pristine condition. Thi...

RECONNAISSANCE PARTY, THE RELIEF OF CHITRAL, 1895.

The former owner of this fine watercolour painting assured me that although it is unsigned it was by a British military officer, Alan David Greenhill-Gardyne. He was commissioned into the Gordon Highlanders in 1888 and was with the Regiment at the Relief of Chitral in 1895. He took part in other North-West Frontier operations and later in the Boer War, he was wounded in the Great War. A talented artist, he exhibited at the Royal Academy...
