Beautiful circa 600CE to 700CE Pyu coins. The larger coin has a srivatsa (temple), on one side and celestial symbol and rising sun, on the other- 1/2 unit sterling quality silver.

Quirky miniature alter piece from a Chinese ethnic minority. This sourced in Yunnan in the late 1980s, and the item itself is circa 19th century. I am inclined to say this is a Miao/Hmong or Yao/Mien item. This intricately carved as a small table with a key fret pattern and “dou” shaped vessel with animal feet and lotus leaf pattern on top. A “dou” is used for holding ceremonial offerings to a deity or heaven in Chinese culture. The lid is missing and its true function is el...

See pg 207, plate 570 Jess Pourett’s: The Yao for reference. The tooth is from a bear (probably lower incisor). Bell H: 4.5cm/1.8in and tooth L: 6cm/2.3in

Interesting old Burmese/Shan hand written book on handmade Saa (mulberry pulp paper). There are 12 pages between the covers- most of these books are usually related to either Buddhist studies or shaman rituals, but as I can’t find anyone who can read this it is being sold as a fine example of calligraphy. All the materials are handmade from the string binding the pages together to the charcoal ink. In this day of ideas being conveyed on a keyboard, back then one really had to think...

Good circa 19th CE bronze Buddha from the Shan people in Burma. I found this in Mae Sai, along the Thai/Burmese border in 1998. The style is rather quirky but the face is typically Shan with Burmese gold and black lacquer. There are a few chips to the lacquer otherwise perfect condition. H: 14.7cm/5.9in and W: 5.7cm/2.3in.

Quirky and eclectic collection of 35 small repousse copper plaques or tokens (possibly garment ornaments). These were collected in Dali, Yunnan, China in the late 1980s. No two are exactly alike and they seem to be influenced by Tantric Buddhism in that the endless knot, parasol, lotus throne, and temple banner motifs are represented in this lot as well as more traditional Chinese symbols such as bats and butterflies. In the last image I have shown a Qilin the only image in this ...

Good Tang Dynasty gray clay brick depicting “Atlas” type figure seated on a lotus blossom I was in Taxila once and saw similar figures which to my mind illustrates the Greco/Roman influence in Tang art. The lotus shows indicates an obvious Buddhist connection. This is painted with “stucco”, and in good condition with no damage. W: 14.5cm/5.8in and H: 17.7cm/7in.

Tang zhenmushou tomb guardian. These were interred in the vault and meant to subdue evil and protect the deceased. This fantastic creature, like the Western Chimera, were composite animals having the stripes and fierce countenance of a tiger and hooves like a deer. Most of the pigments appear to be original, with rare traces of gold applied to the sides of the chest and nose. The “spikes” on the side have been repaired with the probability of more on the body. H: 30cm/11.8in and W: (at ...
