Elegant Jadeite “Bi” shaped pendant with excellent apple green highlights in the stone. This is an old carving that has been repolished, it should be noted that Burmese jade is usually dyed to enhance the green color which after a few years will fade and sometimes turn a brown color. This piece is over 50 years old so this is the original color which will not change over the passage of time. Free shipping via Hong Kong registered airmail include in purchase price...

Very fine ikat and embroidered patterned men’s sarong from Timor Island. The weaving is in three panels on this piece and is exceptionally fine and supple. In excellent condition with a few minor frays on the selvedge only and a few small ink stains. Although by no means an antique, this is a genuine “cultural” item and not made for the “tourist market”- a realistic dating would be between 40 and 60 years old...

Unusual nephrite jade incense burner with human face acquired from an American estate and dates circa mid 20th century. This piece has an Art Deco (IMHO) feel about it but is actually emulating a very famous Shang Dynasty “fanding” (cauldron) that was excavated in Henan in 1959 and is currently in the Capital Museum Beijing. Quite a bit of jade went into carving this piece, at 1100 grams and is in good condition. At highest point: 11.3cm/4.4on and W: 6.7cm/2.8in.

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.
