Good Turkmen Tekke “Bukhara” carpet. This piece has a few tiny holes that can’t be seen when lying on the floor and minor repairs.

Rare Yue glazed, four lugged jar with attractive “iron” spot from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-420). This piece is fully glazed on the outside with some degradation on the inner mouthrim annd shoulder, having said this the glaze is stable with no fritting- there is one tiny chip on edge of mouthrim and a firing chip on the base, which I would deem insignificant on this type of piece...

Quirky “Budai”circa Mid Qing Dynasty, possibly much earlier. This is a high fired pottery molded piece. Stylistically this figure hasn’t changed much since the Song Dynasty so precise dating is difficult. This is an excavated piece and has a similar glaze to Jizhou but without the expected craquelure. Quite possibly this Shekwan piece emulating this. In excellent condition the spot on the nose there is no glaze where it as either been rubbed off or simply never took...

Complete set of horse/donkey bags circa late 19th to early 20th century. Please see enlargements: the flat weave edge on panel is missing and the central panel has about 4cm missing on each horizontal side (see enlargements again). Please note the last two photos show the inside and original colors. I reckon you could put these on the back of your motorcycle as saddle bags. L: 136cm/53in and W: 56cm/22in.

Alabaster Shan Buddha circa 18th century. This has been left out in the sun and rain for the past 10 years so the surface has begun to degrade (a good lesson in the Buddhist fundamental of Anicca: the impermanence of all things). The head has been reattached. The base is hollow: the only example I have ever seen with this. H: 27cm/10.6in and W: 11cm/4.2in.

H: 98cm/38.5in and W: 44cm/7.2in one chip on upper right hand corner. Lovely old Hong Mu wood with nice grain.

Made from very fine hand spun cotton weft and silk warp in natural dyes. The fabric is incredibly smooth and supple and must be touched to really appreciate the fine quality. The embroidered “floating weft” pattern consists of owls, horses, elephants and flowers...

Fine old Iban Bidang circa 1920 with intriguing “water strider” motif, there are a few deer (rusa) and a spirit figure in this pattern as well. Collected in Sarawak in 2006. Aside from some fine yellow lines bordering the side panels this is made from all natural dyes and handspun cotton. Out of the five I have left from this group on my oipnion this is the best one in terms of color and age.There is a moderate hole and minor tear noted in enlargements...

Large Yuan Dynasty Mei Ping jar with rare aquamarine glaze. There is one firing crack on the side which I can fill with ceramic putty that would mitigate the visual impact, otherwise excellent condition. As my photo software tends to flatten images somewhat I have included one of it lying on the side. H: 29.5cm/11.5in and D: 21cm/8.2in.
