One of a kind quirky Thai pangolin amulet carved from bone with Khon script signifying this has some spiritual meaning. I have never seen one these before- possibly used as knife in symbolic blood letting rituals where the shaman cuts out “evil” from his patient. Probably about 30 year old this is a lovely abstract interpretation of a Scaly Anteater. L: 13cm/5.2in.

Good small stone (probably basalt) scraper/adz from the Maori people- very hard, cannot be scratched with stainless steel. Polished on one side only with nice sharp edge. This should predate European contact since utilitarian objects like this would have been replaced by metal materials, so this is dated of 1300CE-1800CE. I bought this in a flea market in Auckland about 30 years ago. L: 5.5cm/2.2in and W: 2.5cm1in.

Unusual lacquered line marker used by either masons or carpenters from Yunnan, China along the Lao border. Carved in the shape of a mythical Qiling beast, the powder (which appears to be a mixture of graphite and coal dust) holder is made from a bamboo section. There is small piece broken off the hexagonal chrysanthemum spool but is in over all good condition for an antique, still functioning artisan’s tool circa. 19th CE. L: 13cm/5in and W: 7cm/2.8in.

Ensemble of shards of classic Song Dynasty stoneware Guan yao and Ding yao pieces. The Ding is particularly nice with intact foot rim and lovely remnants of impressions. I’ve thrown in one Jun shard although I am not a 100% sure on this one- the lipped rim anomalous. Scale is noted in cm in last enlargements. Ideal for the serious collector or student.

Lovely gray pottery head of a smiling woman from the Han Dynasty, Sichuan province. Early funerary art from Sichuan is quite distinct from the Han from the Central Plains of Shaanxi. In general Han Sichuan images show more emotion in their expressions and are far less abstract. Prior to their assimilation during the Qin Dynasty, Sichuan was composed of ethnically and politically separate non Han cultures. In my opinion this can be easily seen in the temperament and style of their a...

Rare blanket from the Khami/Mro ethnic group, Burma. This is made from all handspun cotton and natural dyes and is quite unusual in that it is composed of 5 panels. There is one small hole (noted in enlargements) and moderate staining. L: 1.4m/4ft 7in. W: 1.9m/6ft 2in. I bought this in the late 1990s so at least pre 1980 vintage weaving.

Large circa Jin Cizhou type bowl with dark olive colored “teadust” glaze, there is a strong possibility that this was fired at the Yaozhou kiln. There is some soil accretion on the side but this can cleaned off, there was on small chip and hairline crack but I stabilized the crack where you can hardly notice and filled the chip and touched up with gold leaf noted in last enlargement. D: 21.8cm/8.6in and H: 7.5cm/3in

Nice little Khmer 12th CE lime pot. The lid and jar fused together while firing and were pried open afterwards leaving some chips and gaps. I have filled the largest two chips and done a simple gold leaf touch up on them. H: 8.6cm/3.4in and D: 8.7cm and 3.4in.

Tang to possibly Five Dynasties, stoneware jar with light olive green glaze and reddish clay body. The foot is rimless and concave. There is a “Jun” type glaze run on the body noted in enlargements- probably unintentional but interesting nonetheless. I have done simple repair on the mouth by filling a shallow chip and applying a layer of gold leaf. H: 12cm/4.8in and D: 9cm/3.5in.

Two rare Burmese/Shan small betel containers, 60 to 100 years old with “ku-nan kan byat” patterns and original inner trays. Genuine antique Burmese lacquer is almost impossible to find these days; I picked the larger one up in a small shop Luang Prabang, Laos in 1998. H: 8.7cm/3.4in and W: 10.2cm/4in, and the smaller one, H: 6.7cm/2.7in and D: 7.7cm/3in, in Chiang Mai this year. These have some old repairs, as well as a pleasing craclature typical of antique Burmese lacquer.

A collection of 3 green glazed “kiln wasters” from an unknown Burmese kiln, I acquired these on recent trip to Thailand- the dealer, who I might add is extremely knowledgeable on Southeast Asian ceramics, said they were found in Burma and not from the Tak Hilltop Burial site, where all the Burmese ceramics I have seen have come from. Warped and damaged- what you see is what you get quite decorative as a set. I would date these 14th to 16th centuries. Approx- D: 14cm/ 5.5in and H:...

Eighteen bead strand of quartz crystal. These were excavated from the Tak Hilltop Burial Site in along the Thai Burmese border, and can be dated at least to the 14th century due to the ceramics found in the same strata. I am however of the opinion these are much earlier probably at least 1500 years old or more as similar pieces are found in the Neolithic/Bronze Age Lopburi Sites. These are strung on an expandable elastic string with an interior circumference of 17cm/6.8in. Actual...
