Fine and rare high fired grey stoneware jar with impressed linen pattern and traces of “proto celadon” glaze. This was possibly accidental caused by bits of ash melting and fusing on the surface, as it’s only found on the shoulder and the inside bottom. Some scholar’s have suggested that this was how early Chinese potters discovered the process of making glaze...

Fine and rare fully glazed Tang Dynasty white glazed jar from the Gongxian Kiln, Henan China. Nigel Wood in his definitive work ~ “Chinese Glazes” considers Gongxian ware as one of the three Tang porcelains along with Xing and Ding ware. The photos do not do this piece justice as my editing software tends to truncate (squish) images, and shades of white are the most difficult for me to accurately capture...

Small bottle vase with scholar and mountain scene- porcelain from end of Ming to the beginning of the Qing Dynasty (1620-1683 CE) and is very rare and expensive, so this is good opportunity for a collector to acquire a piece from this period at an affordable price. The mouth rim has been ground down and has some chips. Please note that this is more graceful looking in real life than the images indicate as my photo editing software seems to truncate things a bit...

Good Turkmen Tekke “Bukhara” carpet. This piece has a few tiny holes that can’t be seen when lying on the floor and minor repairs. The kilim head ends are missing but over all very a very pretty rug with an intricate design and very supple weave and soft wool. Circa 1920, L: 160cm/63in and W: 110cm/43in.

Rare vintage/antique Tibetan carpet with some writing (sorry I can’t translate). The pile is soft and shiny while the foundation is undyed wool warp and weft.

Good Jizhou glazed jar with lid circa Southern Song Dynasty. Please note that the lid and body are slightly different as the lid’s glaze lacks the cracalature of the body with more of “tea dust” type glaze. Possibly from the same kiln- “matched but not married”. Having said this they look good together and unless closely scrutinized its hard to notice...

Unusual heavily glazed and potted celadon Ming Dynasty jar with original lid. The glaze is quite thick with a lovely symmetrical and cracalature. I have seen similarly shaped ceramics in blue and white dated Ming, but this is a conservative best guess on my part, this could just as easily be Yuan. There is a chip on the lid glued back into place with original the tip of the finial is worn off which may be viewed in enlargements. D: 12cm/4.8in and H: 11cm4.3in

Nice collection of six old silk embroidered pictorial panels. These would date from late Qing to Republic Period 1890-1930, and were probably originally sold by the Friendship Store or Yue Hwa China Products Store about 30 years ago. The borders are machine made vintage but the embroidery is all hand done. There is a small tear on one noted in enlargement 6#, (actually very difficult to see and if lying flat almost invisible)...

Exquisite vintage hand woven panel used for jacket or dress trims by the Miao people in Guizhou. Please examine close-ups to appreciate the exceptional detail of the handwork on this piece. I bought this in Kaili, Guizhou about 13 years ago and had it framed in handmade traditional embossed “mud cloth”, so could be used as wall hanging. Unframed W: 18cm/7.1in and L 133/cm/52.5in, framed W: 36cm/13.2in and L: 170cm/67in.

Beautiful baby carrier panel from one of the Miao (a.k.a. Hmong) minorities from Southwest China. I bought this in a market in Yangshuo, Guangxi Zhuang, China over 20 years ago and it never appears to have been used and as such is in pristine condition. For the exception of the striped side borders this all hand silk embroidered with a stunning butterfly and bird pattern against a hand woven black cotton background.
