Fine and rare pair of “rice gods” carved from durable iron wood (Belian) from the Kayan people of Sarawak. These were kept in the rafter in rice storage containers as protective spirits to guard the harvested padi. Nice old matched male and female (mother father) pair circa late 19th to early 20th century. Orignally these were on the end of a long stick that was stuck in the rice, but these have been cut to make them appear more “sellable”...

Late Qing Dynasty large “lock” charm. Incised on one side, are the usual characters of wealth, health and longevity and on the other side “together forever” is inscribed, which is uncharacteristically romantic and sentimental for Chinese charms wishing the owner for a long and happy relationship. This would make a great gift for a lover or spouse. Good condition with a couple of “flea bite” sized chips and naturally occurring inclusions...

Small bronze image of Annapurna; the Goddess of the hearth and food (as well a whacking big mountain named after her).

Annapurna symbolizes the divine aspect of nourishing care. This item is circa 17th/18th CE. Excellent patina, originally from Tamil Nadu. It has some tiny “casting” holes and tears on the base- please examine enlargements...

Circa Yuan to Ming Dynasty grayish white heat treated “Smokey jade”, nephrite jade with sinuous archaic Chilong carved on three sides. The hole is new and the ends have been reworked at a later date. As the faces of the Chilongs have been cut off on one end, I am assuming that this was originally longer and then cut to hide some chips or damage...

Rare, circa early 20th century carved wooden mask designed to be placed on or above a door to ward off evil spirits. This was probably made by a minority ethnic group such as the Miao or Tujia and is similar in style to Nuo masks although this was never meant to be worn. H: 33cm/13in and W: 24cm/9.4in. This is large impressive piece with a fierce demeanor.

Beautiful old Zhuang minority textile from Guangxi Zhuang/Guizhou province, China. Woven in two panels with silk embroidered “diamond and star” patterned border. There are small repairs noted in enlargement #4, minor fading on the left edge- all consistent with an old piece, some orange and brighter purple silk thread seem to be a later embellishment, indicating that this piece has been handed down several generations and highlights the well toned abrash of the original pattern...

Very fine bridal head cloth from the Red Yao (Kim Mien) ethnic group Yunnan, China or Vietnam. I acquired a few of these over the years but this the best one yet in terms of design and detailed embroidery work. These are heirloom pieces given by a mother to her daughter. This is made from all hand spun, and hand woven silk on cotton background using only natural dyes, particularly nice are the small, seemingly, random indigo highlights in the field...

Wonderful Tang tomb guardian “Zhen Mushou” head. This has an exceptionally fierce countenance guaranteed to ward off any evil spirits. This originally came from a very large piece but unfortunately this was the only part that could be repaired and salvaged. This would have been part of mythical beast sitting on it’s haunches with hooves; occasionally wings and a human face and placed in a tomb. This piece is made from terra cotta with traces of original black and white pigment...

Very rare Qing Dynasty 18th century brush washer with Ge type and mottled off white glaze. The shape is quite unusual on this as it does not have a foot rim and has a slightly everted rim. There are a couple of blobs of extra glaze near the base that occurred while firing, otherwise good original condition. D: 12cm/4.8in and H 3.8cm/1.5in.

Late Qing Dynasty vase with Ge type rare “rice yellow” crackle glaze and exaggerated everted mouthrim. This was on used as a lamp so there is a hole drilled in the center of the footrim, other wise excellent condition. Please note that my photo editing software tends to truncate images so the shape is much more slender and elegant than the pictures indicate. H: 28cm/11in and D: 11cm/4.3in.

Good small mottled gray nephrite perforated disc circa Tang Dynasty or earlier. D: 2.4cm/.9in and thickness: 8mm/.22in. Good piece- please examine close ups where I have highlighted “tell tale” carving lines with red arrows of a genuine ancient piece. This was probably part of a series of center leftover cuts from a much larger Bi.
