One of a kind, stoneware amphora with brown and black inner glaze, circa 11th century Jin Dynasty. I have only seen one other Chinese ceramic in this shape, which was a Song Dynasty Yaozhou piece described as being a plummet/plum bob. This piece had a couple of firing chips on the mouth which I filled and simply covered with gold leaf and lacquer, a museum quality perspex stand is included. Item H: 12.8cm/5in and D: 6.8cm/2.6in.

Quirky and eclectic collection of 35 small repousse copper plaques or tokens (possibly garment ornaments). These were collected in Dali, Yunnan, China in the late 1980s.
