Very fine and rare pair of underglazed blue and white porcelain jars with lids, from the Southern Yunnan Kiln of Yuxi. This type of ceramic is a fairly recent discovery, the first pieces having hit the market around 2003, although the earliest dating to having found this kind of ware was 1973. The best dating I can give this given its simple design would be late Yuan to early Ming, circa the 12th century, although ceramics from this area have been produced from the Song to Late Ming...

Quirky bonze gibbon monkey “charm” from circa the Han Dynasty. This would have hung from a “money tree”, which was feature of Han tombs from Sichuan Province. This tradition carries on today where one will be placed in someone’s home and is believed by feng shui practioners to bring good fortune and wealth. The monkey is often depicted as a mischievous character in Chinese literature; in the context of the money tree he tries to steal the elixir of immortality. Very t...

Exceptionally rare Qiang spear blade from the Han Dynasty. This bronze would have belonged to a high ranking officer as the gold on the surface would have been beyond the wages paid to your average soldier. Most pieces from this era were of the socketed variety where the wood was inserted in into a sleeve at the bottom, but this one was inset into the wood. The edge is beveled and honed to being near razor sharp. L: 27.2cm/10.8in and W: 3cm/1.2in (mid point). There is approximately...

Rare phallic charm from northern Thailand. This is the only one I have seen carved from a tooth. Originally these were worn by men at the waist and were thought to protect the wearer from any harm to his penis and in a more general sense they also are believed to bring luck especially in terms of “wealth generating or protection”, so one might be kept in your cash box to increase your cash flow or a woman might keep one in her purse to prevent it being “snatched”. These have ...

Nice strand of old wood Tibetan prayer beads. The "faux" coral glass beads can be dated to the Qing Dynasty while there is an old Chinese 2 Fen aluminum coin dated to 1979 hanging off it. An interesting strand; composed of a mixture of white conch “spacer beads”, copper “counting” beads, a silver chain (there is even a machined nut on it)and a well worn polished bone “guru” bead. This is all strung together with yak wool yarn and leather. No doubt this has had items add...

Extremely rare matched pair of large (possibly one of a kind), Liao Dynasty, greenish brown (khaki) glazed Gangwa ware jars from the Chifeng Kiln, Inner Mongolia. The Liao were a non Han culture that ruled in Manchuria and parts of Mongolia 907-1125 CE. This shape is fairly unique to Liao ceramics as it seeks to emulate Turkic West Asian metal work drinking vessels. There is fritting on the edge of the shoulder and mouthrim (clearly visible in enlargements) but otherwise in good condit...

Rare Chinese Yellow Rosewood (Huanghuali) Ming bowl D: 18.4cm/7.2in and H: 5.3cm/2.1in. As is, given that authentic Ming furniture sells in the millions of dollars range this is a pretty good deal. The wide “Bi” shaped footrim was a common feature of Ming porcelain which gives credibility to the dating. Other than applying neutral colored wood oil to the surface I have undertaken no other restoration or conservation, anything more would destroy the integrity of the piece. Persona...

Lovely Chinese nephrite perforated disc. Impossible to accurately date, the carving in the hole is quite old probably over 1000 years but the outer edge and surface chipping has been has been touched up by machine to polish out any old blemishes so I will guarantee this as antique and over 100 years old. The mottled color is all natural and some inclusions giving it a nice celadon look, is particularly nice, definitely not a modern reproduction. Free shipping via Hong Kong registere...
