This incorporates the unique white tiger motif (see enlargement #3) which is believed to give the baby protection...

Lovely carved nephrite pendant with classic “cat on a leaf” motif. This piece has been re-carved to appear as the cat is sitting on a peapod (peapods being one of the myriad of C hinese symbols wishing one to have many children), but was really done to hide the damage on the sides of a larger leaf. This sill retains it’s essence of “kittyness” as she reposes languidly on the leaf. L: 7cm/2.8in.

Gilt copper repousse head of a fierce Tibetan divine being. This was part of a much larger statue so it is difficult to specifically date and identify without seeing it in its original context, but is certainly an old piece 60 to 100 years or more. Possibly it was worn a necklace by a huge statue of a Yiddam or Dharmapala. H: 8cm/3.in. A perspex stand (H: 16cm/6.2) is included, but this not a custom made piece.

Fine and rare tunic group from the Li ethnic (Run speaking dialect) group Hainan Island. I acquired this piece on a trip to Hainan Island in 1987 and it is in pristine condition. The body is made from fine handspun intensely dyed indigo thread while the patterns are constructed from cotton and silk threads on what appears to be a bast fiber backing, please note that the embroidered panels are probably older than the blouse...

Fine old Shan Burmese lacquer box, circa early 20th century with one tray and depicting monkeys playing in foliate background. This piece is a real classic beauty (IMHO).

Exceptionally fine early 20th century antique ikat sarong from the tiny island of Savu, Indonesia.

All dyes are organic also note in last enlargement that the narrow blue and white bands are ikat dyed in groupings of only four strands...
