Unusual gray stoneware stem cup or tazza with celadon glaze, this is not Longquan ware so I am assuming it is from a Southern provincial kiln and conservatively dating it Yuan/Ming. There is a hairline, some fritting on mouthrim and chipped at the foot- all visible in enlargements. There are faint traces of calligraphy inside the foot, most likely the owners name noted in last enlargement. This has a nice shape and glaze. D: 11cm/4.3in and H: 6cm/2.4in.

Very rare early Shekwan unconventionally shaped Leys jar or censer with Jun type flambé glaze, circa late Ming to early Qing. Personally I think this is Ming based on the shallow but wide footrim and similarity in shape to some Ming celadons I have seen, but will guarantee this to be early Qing, i.e. Kangxi/Yongzheng/Qianlong reigns...

Highly unusual and rare festival heirloom cloth from the Khumi or Mro ethnic groups, Rakhine State, Burma. These were probably made in Gujarat, India circa early 18th century or maybe even earlier and are composed of muslin fabric with block prints of soldiers, elephants, cats and tigers. See last enlargement for reference from Mantles of Merit: Chin Textiles from Myanmar, India and Bangladesh by David and Barbara Fraser...

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 Chinese 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.

Good Ming Longquan very heavy bowl with very rare impressed concentric key fret and lotus flower medallion and inner pattern of cranes stalking amidst a lotus garden, symbolizing longevity and purity.

D: 16cm/6.2in and H: 8.5cm/3.3in.

Exceptionally fine early 20th century antique ikat sarong from the tiny island of Savu, Indonesia. The weave is a bit course indicating this was made from local native cotton, rather than handspun imported material. This piece is in perfect condition with 6 narrow patterned bands of floating weft. 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...

Rare ikat blanket from Sumba, Indonesia, although weavings from this island are quite popular collectibles it is very uncommon to find genuine antiques from this group. I traveled there in 1988 and did not see anything that I would qualify as antique. This piece is pre 1920 possibly late 19th century and was acquired from an old Dutch collection and is woven with all handspun threads and natural dyes...

One of kind Cizhou type stoneware vase from a Northern Kiln circa 11th/12th CE, with amber brown glaze and large greenish splash running down the side. Conventional wisdom would suggest that this should be Jin Dynasty but the unusual glaze and the way the bottom sharply narrows at the base is atypical, so Xi Xia is a best guess on my part however the dating is guaranteed. Excellent original condition- H: 19.2cm/7.5in and D: 12cm/4.8in.

Very rare Arakanese Jambupati (royal attire) circa 16th/17th CE, some of the tines on crown have broken off and the bas is a bit compressed from being buried. This was heavily encrusted when I first acquired it and I done my best to clean it uo with destroying the integrity of the piece. I got this from a French collector and Buddhist Art specialist in 2008. H: 18.8cm/7.5in and W: 12cm/4.8in.
