Rare Chinese Yellow Rosewood (Huanghuali) Ming bowl D: 18.4cm/7.2in and H: 5.3cm/2.1in. As is, given that authentic Ming furniture sells in the millions of dollars range this is a pretty good deal. The wide “Bi” shaped footrim was a common feature of Ming porcelain which gives credibility to the dating. Other than applying neutral colored wood oil to the surface I have undertaken no other restoration or conservation, anything more would destroy the integrity of the piece...

Lovely Chinese nephrite perforated disc. Impossible to accurately date, the carving in the hole is quite old probably over 1000 years but the outer edge and surface chipping has been has been touched up by machine to polish out any old blemishes so I will guarantee this as antique and over 100 years old. The mottled color is all natural and some inclusions giving it a nice celadon look, is particularly nice, definitely not a modern reproduction...

Silver plated copper reliquary box in the shape of a Sinhalese chedi (stupa) with hexagonal base, Kandy period Sri Lanka. This would have kept a tiny amount of ash or bone from an important Buddhist monk. This is the only I have ever seen or am likely ever to see gain. Inside there are so low grade gold lotus petals but I have taken the liberty of putting a small well carved angle skin pink coral rose inside. H: 6.5cm/2.5in and W: 3cm/1.2in...

Stunning bronze sword handle from the Dian Kingdom that paralleled the Han Dynasty. Judging from the heavy triangular pommels and spikes near the blade, these were designed for close quarter combat that would look right at home in a fight scene out of Game of Thrones.
