This is a wonderful example of a Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) pottery tomb soldier. This little man originally had wooden arms and cloth adornments that have long since rotted away. This specimen measures roughly 54 cm in height and appears fully intact. Many of these fragile pottery figures have been expertly repaired and without x-rays it would be difficult if not impossible to tell whether this one has been restored. Authenticity is of course guaranteed for life.

This offering is for a pair of Han Dynasty tomb soldiers, one of which is extremely unique. The first soldier is NOT your typical Han Dynasty (circa 200 BC) tomb figure. This extraordinarily rare piece is quite literally one of a kind. Note the position of his hands in front of him - this is indicative of a special member of the color guard. There generally would be one "color guard" for every 100 or more of the regular infantry soldiers that you commonly see for sale in other galleries. Given t...

Here is a great little decorated Khmer or Champa pottery pipe. This particular piece is heavily decorated with some minor damage in the form of chips to the rims and body. It measures almost 6cm in length. I currently have three of these that were all recovered by divers from the red river delta, which accounts for their pristine condition.
