Collection of 10 dated Song Dynasty Coins (960-1119CE). I used to get these sets in from an old dealer in Macau, he has since sold them all and I can no longer acquire them. Dates and scale in enlargements. Ungraded but guaranteed to be authentic.

Beautiful old classic Lao shoulder clothe, all natural dyes with hand spun silk threads. I picked this up on my first trip to Laos in the mid 1990s, at the Talat Sao Market, Vientiane and would date this to the 1970/80s. The fabric is incredibly soft and supple and may be worn (it is amazingly warm) as a scarf or hung as wall art. It has a few loose threads on the selvedge but otherwise in excellent condition with no holes or tears. W: 38cm/15in and L: 243cm/8ft.

Interesting set of six amber glass beads. These came out of Cambodia but are of Chinese manufacture and would date circa Song to Yuan (1000-1400CE) which coincides to the Khmer Empire when there was a lot of trade was carried on between these two kingdoms. I have two references for this kind of bead referring to them as to either Liao or Ming...

Good long rectangular aventurine bangle from early central Thai Bronze Age Lopburi Culture circa 500 BC. There is some damage on one end, well documented in enlargements. Aventurine is commonly mistaken for Jade as it has the same degree of hardness (6.5 Mohs scale rating)...

Fine and rare Ming Dynasty, emulating white Jade, belt fastener made of glass. There are a few tiny chips but they are too small to photograph. Glass artifacts in good condition are more difficult to find than Jade given its fragility. In the center there is a “Shou”-Chinese longevity character, surrounded by cloud scrolls and a meander pattern on the perimeter. L: 6cm/2.3in and W: 4.6cm/1.8in. See last enlargements for reference from Simon Kwan’s: Early Chinese Glass, pgs...

Exceptionally rare classic “pea green” celadon glazed vase from the early Qing Yongzheng/Qianlong. The “brown wash” inside the footrim is typical of Qianlong and guaranteed to be of this period or earlier. The mouthrim of the vase has been lined with copper, this is a very old style of restoration no longer done today and probably dates to the late Qing- please see enlargements...

Rare strand of hexagonally faceted round beads from China. These have very large holes usually indicative of ancient workmanship. These were represented to me as Warring States, which is consistent about red agate and carnelian that have a long history of use in China particularly from the Warring States to Han Dynasty, where some really exquisite pieces were made...

Good monkey khik carved from wood, contrary to how I see these often advertised they have little to do with attracting women, but are worn by on the side by men for luck and prosperity. The symbolism goes way back to Hindu mythology where the Shiva lingam represents primordial creative energy and the Monkey God Hanuman embodies courage and devotion. L: 5cm/2in. Unlike the cast metal types, this is a one off item and good example of Thai folk art.

Fine and rare high fired grey stoneware jar with impressed linen pattern and traces of “proto celadon” glaze. This was possibly caused by bits of ash melting and fusing on the surface, as it’s only found on the shoulder and the inside bottom. There are some surface cracks but nothing going all the way through and minor chips on the edge of mouthrim, given its age circa early Warring States (475-221BCE); it is remarkably well preserved with no restoration...

Magnificent Sumbanese ikat from Waingapu, made from all vegetable dyed handspun cotton thread. I picked this up in 1988 and can safely date this 1970-1980. Created by a master weaver the themes are typically Sumbanese with skull tree, serpents, and human figures. This is a lively piece using only three basic colors and symmetrical design to achieve a well balanced effect, missing in the weird and colorful contemporary weavings sold in the tourist bazaars of Denpasar, Bali...
