Fine and rare classical old Cambodian silk lower garment, approximately 60 to 90 years old. This piece may be worn either by men or women. It was originally sewn together and stepped into like a sarong skirt however it was given one fold in the front and then twisted from the bottom and pulled between the legs and tucked in the front and secured to the waist with a silk sash or belt to form a pantaloon type garment The frog pattern is very rare and the only one of I have yet to see...

Very rare late 19th- to early 20th CE storage basket from the Bidayuh people of Sarawak. For basket collectors this is a real “classic”. The lid is made from the skin of a sambar deer while the basket plaiting is all rattan with some bamboo slats on one side as a cushion; also the basket is lined inside with peeled wood. There are a few very minor repairs and holes here and there but overall I would consider this piece in very good condition given its age and environment...

Good 18 seal script characters “chop” circa early 20th century. I wish I could give a more detailed translation other than it being for an association but it is, for the moment, the best I can do. Very skillfully carved with a few chips on one corner, please note the scale is centimeters.

Colorful and quirky glass bangle fragments drilled and reworked into beads (two strands). These seem to have traveled far and wide. The strand without the small beads I bought in HK about 5 years ago and the other was purchased in Bangkok at about the same time. These originally came from Iran circa 6th CE - 7th CE which would make them late Sassanian Empire or early Islamic Era...

Gray pottery lid or finial to a Tang Dynasty jar in the shape of a pagoda’s top.

Rare Qing Dynasty bottle vase with a straight neck and fine cracalature- there is one tiny glaze chip inside mouthrim noted in enragements. This may be Shekwan but I would generalize and say this from a Guangdong or South Fujian kiln. Very pretty glaze! H: 17.4cm/6.9in.

Unique clear glass Sino Tibetan image of a Dakini, most likely cast from a mold. Basically even with the usual clay images it is problematic dating them as the molds may be old but the item recently made, this piece has traces of compacted soil, surface pitting and wear, as well as small Ming Dynasty Buddhist and Taoist clear glass charms having been documented, I feel a circa 100 year plus is a conservative dating...

Rare “Phra Ha Roi” (literally 500 Buddhas but in practice means a lot of tiny images) late Haripunchai, terra cotta votive fragment.
