Beautiful and intriguing Sumba men’s hinggi tunic with rare “pagi- sore” morning-afternoon design. Most hingis will mirror each other in their design at the top and bottom but this one presents us with one single picture. Incorporated into the pattern are horses which are typical wealth symbols with the Sumbanese as well as “sacred crocodiles” and lobsters...

This style of decoration is unique to this group and very difficult to make, as every tiny bit of tin has to be individually cut and crimped. Recently acquired from a private Hong Kong collector, these are the first examples I have send of these I have seen in the past 10 years...

Lovely old traditional Bhutanese woman’s dress, approximately 70/80 years old. This has a very refined weave with all the narrow stripes being made of silk and the wider bands of having a cotton warp and inner “sechu” silk embellished pattern which gives it a three dimensional feel. The colors are very soft and pastel and most likely natural...

Nice woman’s dress from Bhutan with yellow and white “aikapur” brocade pattern. Made from all raw silk in good condition although the bottom edge where it would have dragged along the ground has some minor fraying note in enlargements. I acquired this in Bhutan in 1996 from a little old lady sitting along the trail to Tiger’s Nest, Paro Taktsang before it burnt down. This was already old at the time so I will date circa 1960 (ish). L324cm/92in and W: 120cm/51in.

Classic semi antique Laotian textile from the Tai Daeng ethnic group. This was acquired in 1991, just when Lao was opening itself for tourism and was about 30 years old at the time so this would date pre Vietnam War era. It is mounted onto a commercial Chinese chintz cloth border (looks original), made from all hand spun cotton and silk thread in the embroidery (except for the black pattern). There is one small repair noted in enlargements...

Comparing the dyes (note the well toned silk threads in last enlargement) to other dated Vietnam War era pieces, I saw during a recent visit, I would put this piece to at least 60 years or older.

Nice old Burmese Jadeite bracelet circa 50 years old or more, there is an old crack on the surface and possible inclusion- but quite a bit of Jade stone went into cutting this piece. Nowadays most bangles are made from less jade to save costs and materials and also worth noting that new “dyed” jade will lose it’s color after a few years while a piece this old will stay the same. Outer diameter 7.4cm, inner diameter 5.5cm and thickness 1.4cm.
