Very rare and quirky phallic shaped small Bowenite- “Suzhou” jade hairpin from the Ming Dynasty, the woman I bought this from referred to it as the “gao” (a crude Cantonese expression for penis- so it’s not just my imagination) jade. Bowenite is not as hard as nephrite and amongst Chinese collectors is considered “soft jade”. L: 8.3cm/3.2in. The last enlargement is a reference from Chinese Jade by Jessica Rawson and was found in a tomb near Shanghai.

Lovely antique suanzhi wood planing tool. I bought this because of the anthropomorphic shape in the center which looks vaguely like a Zhu Ming or Han Dynasty tomb figure. Circa 50 to 80 years old, this is a nice “stand alone” art piece or can be repurposed for antique Chinese furniture repair. There are a couple of checks in the wood as can be seen in enlargements. L: 19cm/7.5in, W: 6.5cm/2.7in and 4cm/1.5 at its thickest point.
