Beautiful circa 1880 area rug from the Shirwan area in the Caucasus. This has been restored, repaired, reselvedged and head ends stabilized over the years, so examine the enlargements closely. To get this kind of repair now would cost a lot more than what I am asking it. The drawing is still quite clear and sharp with a very charming design. All natural dyes- 149cm/58.5in x 107cm/42in.

Semi antique Timor sarong made from all natural dyes and handspun cotton circa 1950/1960. Both top and bottom have embroidered panels.

Beautiful women’s skirt from the Bahnar (Ba Na) ethnic group from the Central Highlands of Vietnam, woven from fine handspun cotton using all natural dyes. The weaving is very intricate and refined, note the use of narrow warp ikat bands throughout this piece. This piece is in perfect condition and dates to 1960 to 1970. The center panel is stitched loosely at the top as it was meant to be used as a pocket. Google Bahnar Bob Mc Kerrow to view photos of women wearing this kind o...

Very rare man’s ceremonial tunic from the Chin ethnic group, probably Falam Township, Chin State Myanmar. I would consider this an antique heirloom blanket between 1910-1940 finely woven from hand spun cotton thread and natural dyes. This incorporates the classic Chin diamond twill weft pattern as well as double side embroidery. This still has traces of the original and embroidery portions of the selvedge side are missing (I am guessing approx 15cm/6in) - W: 128cm/50.5in and L; 1...

Fine embroidered patch possibly from an old Chinese baby hat or one of the many Miao groups but to be honest I am not sure. The pattern seems more abstract than a typical Chinese piece with crimped metal alloy decorations. Circa 60 to 90 years old with very intricate and detailed stitching- minor losses to some of the metal bits. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail. L: 17.5cm/7in and W: 14cm/5.5in.

Very rare complete jacket back panel from the remote Miao Jiupang group from Jiahe County, Guizhou province (see last enlargement). This style of decoration is unique to this group and very difficult to make, as every tiny bit of tin has to be individually cut and crimped. Recently acquired from a private Hong Kong collector, these are the first examples I have send of these I have seen in the past 10 years. Excellent condition This is semi antique circa 50 to 60 years old L: 39cm/15.5i...

Antique Chinese “lucky charm” with a bat holding a sign (almost like a Chinese pawn shop), the side in enlargement one means to have success getting a job in the civil service and the other side translates “Amitabha” Buddha. Civil service jobs were always highly desirable in old Chinese culture as they had prestige and power. This is circa Qing Dynasty and high quality silver with very detailed workmanship especially with stippling in the chasing. The silver is tarnished but will...

Rare meditation sitting rug, constructed with cotton warp and wool weft, this piece was most likely woven in Khotan, Xinjiang and dates at least to the middle 19th century. The wool pile is pretty much worn down to nothing except for the darker brown part that has a stylized “lotus” medallion in the center and border. I bought this the Barkor bazaar in Lhasa over 20 years ago and the side still has traces of felt where another wool border would have been sewn on in the trad...
