Large hardwood two tiered, vintage display stand (I think the wood is mahogany) with burlwood veneer.

There are few checks and some stains on the wood. This piece is quite heavy and solid. L: 49.5cm/19.5in, H: 16cm/6.3in and W: 18.5cm/7.5in.

Exceptionally fine and rare Khmer black lacquer “pillow box” with an abstract floral pattern. This is an old pre Khmer Rouge item, dating 50 to 60 years old, possibly more.

Very rare lacquer box with geometrical pattern and convex shaped lid and bottom. The lacquer is quite thick on this piece with unusual motif. I have only seen two boxes in this style which came out of Yunnan, China, so these may have been made as trade items to Yi minority who seem to make similar, though less sophisticated, patterned lacquer pieces. This was made in the first half of the 20th century, and except for a chip on the lid surface it is in excellent condition. D: 14.3cm/5...
