Lovely small three legged cooking vessel from the Han Dynasty. The legs are in the shape of small bears and the handles on the lid seem to resemble wing tips. There is a lot of restoration on this piece in the cooking basin, one the legs has been reattached, so please view the enlargements carefully. There is some warpage to the lid as well, but it is the original one. D: 12.4cm/4.9in and H: 10.4cm/4.4in.

Exquisite inside painted glass crystal bottle depicting 7 tigers in a mountain landscape. This piece is dated 1987 which marks the height of contemporary Chinese Arts and Crafts as this coincides with opening up of the PRC and its eagerness to highlight the skill of their traditional artisans. Pieces from this period are much sought after by Chinese collectors since quality has since then declined. The quality of this piece may be recognized by realistic three dimensional details and that it...

Phallic charm from Lamphun Northern Thailand- serendipitously enough, where they have an annual sausage festival. Originally these were worn by men at the waist and were thought to protect the wearer from any harm to his penis and in a more general sense they also are believed to bring luck especially in terms of “wealth generating or protection”, so a woman might be kept in your cash box to increase your cash flow or a woman might keep one in her purse to prevent it being “snatc...

Unusual pair of gray stoneware Cizhou funeral jars with white slip, clear glaze and appliqué human figures on the neck. Some of the glaze came off when trying to clean the dirt adhesions off so best to leave it alone for now. Soak it for a week or to in plain water and it might come of with a toothbrush under running water. Usually this style is found in a Qingbai glaze and these are the only ones I have seen in Cizhou. Possibly these were not meant to have lids as the mouth rim is ...
