Exquisitely hand embroidered silk on satin ladies sleeve cuffs. Given the materials used and quality of stitching I will date these early 20th century possibly even Qing. These are near pristine condition and appear to have never been used (possibly for a wedding once). There are a couple of tiny stains and a small “scuff” on the surface, but no tears or holes whatsoever. The purple band is not part of the embroidery and is a ribbon sewn on. Opened L: 68cm/24in and W: 36cm/14.1in...

Lovely vintage wearable woman’s dress from the Tai Dam ethnic group Vietnam. Made from all hand woven cotton cloth the, colorful silk embroidered wide bordered hem is particularly nice. Good condition, with a couple of fading streaks at the waist panel, but as this part was never meant to be shown when worn I would consider this negligible. W: 136cm/54in and L: 97cm/38in.

Ensemble of excavated gilt bronze and repoussé artifacts. These are for the knowledgeable collector. Two of the “silvery” pieces appear to be “pak tong” alloy. The Sino Tibetan cloud scrolls and “pack tong” seem to be unrelated and the dragon on the leaf appears to be Tang. Anyway I can guarantee all these “bits” to be over 100 years old and most likely much older. Condition: what you see is what you get. Scale is in last enlargements. If I had the skill, I’d c...

Rare Buddhist votive terra cotta plaque, circa 10-12th century, most likely Mon culture. Very interesting iconography with the Buddha seated on a lotus supported by two Brahma (Nandi) bulls. He is surrounded by a dotted nimbus on his torso, with a flaming one around his head and seated beneath a Bo tree. Condition as pictured, the facial features are still legible, on the back, lines have been carved to represent the leaf of a Bo tree as well as an incised but illegible inscription. ...

Stunning Zo/Tedem blanket from the Burmese Indian border region. This piece is all silk, which indicates it was used on ceremonial occasions or owned by a high status woman. Mantles of Merit by David and Barbara Fraser has a near identical piece, pg 89 images 148 a,b, and c but their piece is mostly cotton, dated 1930 to 1960 so I will date this one the same. The feel on this piece is incredibly soft and supple, really something that cannot be conveyed through photos. There are a f...

Charming old small black and red lacquer vessel from Kenteng, Shan State, Burma. A very cute piece and genuinely old- circa 50 to 80 years. This piece is quite unusual in that it has six feet instead of the usual four. There is some surface craclature as to be expected from authentic old lacquer but no breakage in the body. D: 13.5cm/5.3in and H: 8.2cm/3.2in.

Luscious raw silk double sided “lungsema” kira from the Tashigang area, Bhutan. The palette on this piece is subdued yet exuberant with 9 different kinds of auspicious symbols embroidered and over a 100 lines of color (I lost count). It is in excellent condtion with little sign of wear (these are usually frayed a bit on the edge that drags the ground). There is one stain which should clean out if sent to a dry cleaner. Best one I have had to date. L: 2.6m/102in and W: 1.4m/55in....

Unique signed old, men’s blanket from the Biboki region, West Timor. The writing is different from the center then it is from the ends so perhaps, this is a dedication or blessing rather than a signature. W: 114cm/44.8in and L: 186cm/73in, except for the yellow and blue lines this is woven from all naturally dyed handspun thread. Dating circa 1950 to 1960.

Exceptionally rare baby blanket from the Tujia weavers of Longshan County, Hunan Province, China. I have been looking for one of these for years and this is the first complete blanket I have ever found, albeit the lower two border panels come from a different piece. This incorporates the unique white tiger motif (see enlargement #3) which is believed to give the baby protection. The there is a repair to the border panel and the central cotton panel has some holes and has unraveled at the...

Collection of 5 silver alloy loop earrings with coiled ends from Cambodia. These are excavated pieces with nice patina circa 200/300 years old. I have seen heavy classic Khmer period bronze earrings in the same basic shape but these seem more recent. These were acquired in the Aranchaprathet border market in Thailand opposite Poipet, Cambodia. Two have flaws noted in last two enlargements. Diameter on the largest one is 3.1cm/1.2in and the smallest one is D: 2.1cm/.82in. Combined...
