Ensemble of very old beads, I found these in a small shop in Phrae, Northeast Thailand a few years ago. The green mottled beads are late Qing Dynasty Peking glass, the brown glass tapered tube bead emulating agate was probably made for the Funan or Chenla Kingdoms as I have agate beads from the same period which are pretty much identical, the white bead with orange splash is at least early Qing. The jewel in the crown, so to speak, is the roughly faceted blue glass Chinese eye bead w...

Nice old Thai sticky rice “lunch box” in Lanna or Issan style. This is about 30 or 40 tears old with typical double wall construction. There are areas that have been lovingly repaired with some nylon cord. To the purist this may be seen as a distraction but I see time and an ethic where nothing was ever wasted- this was a valued very personal object. Next to it I have placed a contemporary one. Nowadays even this would be considered disposable; when you travel in the Thai count...

Quirky “chief’s” stool carved out very heavy Belian Iron Wood, from an Ibanic group. This is one solid piece except for the legs which have been inserted like dowels.

Iron wood is quite valuable these days, excellent condition with no cracks or checks.

Aside from tiny amounts of commercially dyed thread used on the borders as highlights this piece is made of all hand spun treads and natural dyes. It is quite a durable weave with denim like feel....

Complete set of “machete”, scabbard and small “piru” carving knives from the nomadic Penan/Punan people of Sarawak. I bought this from a villager at a Penan “reservation” Batu Bungan outside of Gunung Mulu Park. Although the side scabbard is made of vinyl stitched on with monofilament fishing line the technique for making the blades are completely traditional. May be in the last enlargement the parang blade has a slight curve and is beveled on one side only which is for...

Old Chinese stone ware bottle. This shape is fairly generic and could date anywhere from Jin Dynasty to Ming, so I am taking the middle road and attributing it as Yuan. The mouth is chipped but it has a nice shape, note my photo editing software tend to truncate images, so this piece is more elegant in real life than the photos indicate. The glaze has traces of a paraffin patina. H: 24cm/9.5in and D: 18cm/7in.
