Celadon bottle vase, from Jingdezhen and therefore a porcelain rather than a stoneware although the glaze borrows heavily from the Longquan glaze. This is quite a heavy piece with an incised abstract lotus pattern and Yuhuchunping shape very much in the classic Ming Style. There is one tiny repair on the mouthrim noted in enlargements. H: 24.8cm/9.8in and D: 15.4cm/6in.

Beautiful circa 1880 area rug from the Shirwan area in the Caucasus. This has been restored, repaired, reselvedged and head ends stabilized over the years, so examine the enlargements closely. To get this kind of repair now would cost a lot more than what I am asking it. The drawing is still quite clear and sharp with a very charming design. All natural dyes- 149cm/58.5in x 107cm/42in.

Semi antique Timor sarong made from all natural dyes and handspun cotton circa 1950/1960. Both top and bottom have embroidered panels.

Very fine ikat and embroidered patterned men’s sarong from Timor Island. The weaving is in three panels on this piece and is exceptionally fine and supple. In excellent condition with a few minor frays on the selvedge only and a few small ink stains. Although by no means an antique, this is a genuine “cultural” item and not made for the “tourist market”- a realistic dating would be between 40 and 60 years old...

Unusual nephrite jade incense burner with human face acquired from an American estate and dates circa mid 20th century. This piece has an Art Deco (IMHO) feel about it but is actually emulating a very famous Shang Dynasty “fanding” (cauldron) that was excavated in Henan in 1959 and is currently in the Capital Museum Beijing. Quite a bit of jade went into carving this piece, at 1100 grams and is in good condition. At highest point: 11.3cm/4.4on and W: 6.7cm/2.8in.

Exceptionally fine and rare Western Jin Dynasty Yueyao Ware ewer from the Zhejiang celadon kilns.

H: 26cm/10.2in and D: 16.5cm/6.5in.

Beautiful nephrite “belt” loop at least Qing Dynasty possibly earlier. This can be repurposed into a lovely pendant. Included is a faux leather cord with a clasp that you can crimp on to one side to custom fit the length. This stone has quite a striking vivid green color so it may be possibly be aventurine which closely resembles jade in color and hardness but as this came out of China this would be quite rare. L: 4.7cm/1.9in, W: 2.8cm/.9in and 1.1cm/4in thick...

Beautiful and elegant 10th century circa Late Five Dynasties to Early North Song Dynasty lobed saucer. This is a very classic Yue ware glazed saucer from the Shanglinhu kiln complex in Zhejiang. This is the same family of kilns that produced the famous Bi-Se/Mi-Se “secret ware” discovered from Famen Temple in Xian. Very thinly potted this piece with an organic flower shaped body, has been repaired so please examine enlargements. D: 14.2cm/5.5in and H: 3.8cm/1.5in.

Beautiful women’s skirt from the Bahnar (Ba Na) ethnic group from the Central Highlands of Vietnam, woven from fine handspun cotton using all natural dyes.

The center panel is stitched loosely at the top as it was meant to be used as a pocket...

Very rare early Tang Dynasty bronze vase. There is one repair noted in enlargement 5# where the previous owner had knocked an 8mm hole on the side, he kept the original chip and I simply glued it back in and covered the fracture with a bit of original bronze filings. This is covered in typical azurite verdigris- beneath the bronze is quite stable and thick so this might be able to be either manually or chemically or cleaned. H: 26.5cm/10.5in and D: 12cm/4.8in...

Beautiful and intriguing Sumba men’s hinggi tunic with rare “pagi- sore” morning-afternoon design. Most hingis will mirror each other in their design at the top and bottom but this one presents us with one single picture. Incorporated into the pattern are horses which are typical wealth symbols with the Sumbanese as well as “sacred crocodiles” and lobsters...

Very rare man’s ceremonial tunic from the Chin ethnic group, probably Falam Township, Chin State Myanmar. I would consider this an antique heirloom blanket between 1910-1940 finely woven from hand spun cotton thread and natural dyes. This incorporates the classic Chin diamond twill weft pattern as well as double side embroidery...

Collection of Miao vintage and antique (most likely) sleeve panels from Guizhou. These date from about 40 to 80 years old; please bear in mind, the ability to do this kind of work has pretty much died out as the economic development in Chinese has caused most young women in the villages to move to the city for better employment opportunities. Textiles still play an important part in Miao life but much of what is produced today is done by machine rather than hand...
