This is Jiao xiang, a sedan chair box. Used by scholar-officials to carry their documents and writing implements from post to post. This is NOT of a great wood, but today it is still a rare piece of furniture/scholar's art in Beijing. Probably made of elm. This is complete, good condition. Serviceable and very good lines. This box had been a bit rickety for a long time, I have simply had it put back in order: no wood needed to be replaced, so none was...

This is a large cedar wood brushpot, carved to resemble a tree trunk. Ir 20 cm diameter, 21.5 cm high. Condition is excellent. There are markings on the bottom: one is the mark of the store at which I purchased this -- but I have no idea where that was or is. The other is a red wax seal showing it re-entered China (not a departure seal). And then my own inventory seal.

Here are two large lotus leaf toggles each with frogs and lotus leafs as key parts of the work. In the first 4 frames we see a fat frog nibbling on the vine of the lotus which has come through the leaf from the bottom where the vine itself begins and comes through the leaf. The frog is very large, fat. In the second toggle, the whole lotus "action" is on the underside: a large lotus pod with the seeds is seen, all seeds are in excellent condition and all move...

Raising and training crickets to do battle with other crickets is a North China past-time. To do it right: one needs nets to catch and "picks" to pick them up to put in the net. One needs ticklers kept in a tube to get them into fighting form. Here we show a very good bamboo tube for storing the ticklers and some "picks". The tickler should be a very thin piece of zitan with rat's hair affixed to the end: that hair is supposed to arouse the cricket.

This very nice small box has at least two uses. First, we have added a cord to it and it can be used to carry small things around, from the belt. Without the cord it becomes a ventilated small container. It can be used to hold incense bits before burning. It can be used to hold a cricket before sending it out. It is a fine container. Panel 3 before adding the cord: this is a small hole in the top to allow ventilation for either a cricket or incense...

The whole skin is a "mess" This brushpot, of boxwood is rare. It is dying for a trip away from North China. It wants some humidity and wants to be held and waxed. It is done as if the bark of a tree. 100 years old
