Good brush painting of a tiger by the artist Li Shou Lin dated 1978. Painted in the traditional style water color and ink mounted on silk and heavy paper. Unfortunately the mounting paper has suffered mold damage while the painting itself was affected in a minor way in the form of some discoloration, having said this if framed with new matting the flaw is very negligible. Please examine enlargements- will be mailed in a cardboard tube...

Rare two paneled bed child’s cover from the Daizu (aka Shan and Tai) ethnic minority of Southern Yunnan, China. To date this is only the third I have seen in this style. An unusual piece with fine embroidery, a hemp or bast fiber foundation and all hand spun threads. I would date this semi antique mid 20 century with mostly natural dyes. The only silk threads used in this piece appear to be the yellow...

Rare tiger image carved from black coral; this has some Thai Khon script lightly incised on the surface indicating that this has some sort of “protective” power and is a fetish or amulet.

Beautifully carved red Nephrite jade cong with carved bands and face. This piece is probably mid 20th century although copies from famous Neolithic sites like Liangzhu and Hongshan were commissioned as early as the Qianlong reign for discerning collectors. D: L: 5.6cm/2.2in and W: 2.2cm/.8in. This kind of jade is quite rare so much of the value in this piece lies in the stone as well as the workmanship.

Antique portable spinning wheel from Chiang Mai area Northern Thailand. Nice functional old piece with classic Thai carved motifs on the support arms and spokes. This is from a village so it has been repaired as needed over the years using various bits. The handle is missing and the there is some damage to the carving in enlargement 4. This will pack flat (relatively) and is early 20th century. W: 67cm/26.3 and H: 47cm/18.5in

Exquisite pair of light turquoise small bowls with apocryphal zhuanshu seal script Yongzheng mark. It has been quite difficult trying to get the exact color with my photo editing software, so enlargement #3 best approximates the original color even if it does look a bit on the “lavenderish” side. These are exceptionally fine examples of Jingdezhen 1960s copies of imperial pieces and I will guarantee them to this time. Christies N.Y...

Unusual collection of 6 old “prayer cloths” from a Taoist Master’s ceremonial robe (see enlargement #7). For generic purpose’s these should be considered to be from the Mien group as they came from Vietnam and are circa 40 to 50 years old- woven from handspun cotton. They all have the same basic pattern indicating they are probably from the same priest’s outfit. These used to be quite easy to get about 15 years ago but now almost impossible to find...

Beautiful old classic Lao shoulder clothe, all natural dyes with hand spun silk threads. I picked this up on my first trip to Laos in the mid 1990s, at the Talat Sao Market, Vientiane and would date this to the 1970/80s. The fabric is incredibly soft and supple and may be worn (it is amazingly warm) as a scarf or hung as wall art. It has a few loose threads on the selvedge but otherwise in excellent condition with no holes or tears. W: 38cm/15in and L: 243cm/8ft.

Good monkey khik carved from wood, contrary to how I see these often advertised they have little to do with attracting women, but are worn by on the side by men for luck and prosperity. The symbolism goes way back to Hindu mythology where the Shiva lingam represents primordial creative energy and the Monkey God Hanuman embodies courage and devotion. L: 5cm/2in. Unlike the cast metal types, this is a one off item and good example of Thai folk art.

Magnificent Sumbanese ikat from Waingapu, made from all vegetable dyed handspun cotton thread. I picked this up in 1988 and can safely date this 1970-1980. Created by a master weaver the themes are typically Sumbanese with skull tree, serpents, and human figures. This is a lively piece using only three basic colors and symmetrical design to achieve a well balanced effect, missing in the weird and colorful contemporary weavings sold in the tourist bazaars of Denpasar, Bali...
