Quirky “Sai Sin” thread holder. Sai Sin chord is a type of religious blessing conferred on one usually after you have made a donation to a temple, by a monk.

This came from a Buddhist temple in Northern Thailand and is around 50 or 60 years old. L: 41cm/16in and W: 31cm/12in.

Early Northern Song bowl bowl, with broad lip around the mouthrim. The body is high fired with a greenish glaze. Excellent original condition, no damage. I tend to think this is trying to emulate either a Ding or Qingbai type. I have seen three of this type bowl recently and all have some out of Sichuan, so most likely from a Southern Kiln. D: 17.7cm/7in and H: 6cm/2.4in.

Rare and unusual shallow bowls enclosed in pewter. The original blank dishes were imported from Japan and then decorated in Hong Kong. By the 1980s this trade died out due to rising property costs as well as the transitioning of the Hong Kong manufacturing sector to China. This pair is in excellent condition and perfectly matched with floral panels and medallions. These are also the only examples I have seen jacketed in pewter. D: 17cm/6.9in and H: 4cm/1.6in. Dated to 1970’s.
