Rare rattan lacquer bowl from the Karen ethnic group in Lanna, Thailand. This piece has incorporated a thin wood branch to construct the mouthrim and is thickly covered in raw lacquer.

Fine and rare 19th century, 2 paneled, ceremonial men’s “bell” cape (khing ta zhi) from the Southern Chin ethnic group in Burma- this piece would have been worn during religious and planting festivals. This is unique, in being woven with either hemp or flax fiber rather than cotton. The weaving is quite delicate and complicated; I put a single grain of rice to highlight the intricate and minute details of the blue and red alternating points...

The high footrim and lipped mouthrim would indicate this piece is early Northern Song, there is firing ring in the center where another piece would have been stacked on top during the firing process. The glaze has an even green hue with nice craquelure and smooth surface patina (not at all dry and flaky). The body is beautiful white stoneware. Aside from a few frits on the mouthrim this is in perfect condition. D: 14.9cm/5.8in and H: 6.7cm/2.6in.

Nice strand of Kushan/Bactrian of mixed stone (mostly carnelian) beads. I acquired these along with coins dating from 1st- 4th CE from the same site in North West Pakistan, so these can be dated no later than 1500 years old. There are a few agate and quartzite beads in the lot, some with traces of “etching”. The crescent shaped beads would have originally small ringed shaped ornaments that have been drilled and “knapped” to some extent to accommodate them being strung...
