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.

It is very thinly potted for a Yuan piece and aside from the hairline is in excellent condition. D: 15.4cm/6.1in and H: 3.2cm/1.2in

Rare antique silk Cambodian ikat lower garment. H: 90cm/35.5in L: 2.1m/7ft10in. with a twill weave; unique among Southeast Asian textiles. This skill died out during the reign of the Khmer Rouge and has not yet recovered the skills and technique to make a textile of this quality. The size of this piece indicates it would have been worn by an upper class family much like a pantaloon with center being passed through the legs and tucked into the waist...
