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 weaving is very intricate and refined, note the use of narrow warp ikat bands throughout this piece. This piece is in perfect condition and dates to 1960 to 1970. The center panel is stitched loosely at the top as it was meant to be used as a pocket. Google Bahnar Bob Mc Kerrow to view photos of women wearing this kind o...

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. This still has traces of the original and embroidery portions of the selvedge side are missing (I am guessing approx 15cm/6in) - W: 128cm/50.5in and L; 1...

Rare complete lacquer tobacco box with trays from the Karen hilltribe ethnic group Northern Thailand. Next to nothing has written about this craft amongst the Karen people although they are known for their water tight baskets using lacquer to seal the weave. H: 9.5cm/3.8in and D: 8.6cm/3.3in.

Old (100 years or more) leather belt from Tibet with 5 damascened silver patterns on iron fittings with complete buckle. There is some rust on the metal bits, maybe some Silvo polish on them will bring some of the shine back to the silver. All the pieces seem to be here except for a scabbard attachment. Total L: 118cm/46.5in. I bought this the Barkor bazaar in front of the Jokang in Lhasa almost 20 years ago; the leather is rough but serviceable.

Exquisite pair of late circa late 19th-early 20th CE loom weft supports carved into the shape of lotus buds with beautiful classic Khmer floral scroll motif and remnants of original red and black lacquer. I bought these in the Russian Market about 14 years ago in Phnom Pehn; a pair of equal quality is housed in the National Museum there. Each is carved from a single piece of wood. They are in very good condition with minor checks and knocks as to be expected from antique wooden implements. H: 26...

Antique portable spinning wheel from Chiang Mai area Northern Thailand. Nice functional old piece with classic Thai carved motifs on the support arms and spokes. This is from a village so it has been repaired as needed over the years using various bits. The handle is missing and the there is some damage to the carving in enlargement 4. This will pack flat (relatively) and is early 20th century. W: 67cm/26.3 and H: 47cm/18.5in

Very rare woman’s tube skirt from Taliang ethnic group in Attapeu province Laos. Please note in the 3rd enlargement is the image of helicopter dating back to the CIA covert “Air America” operation Laos from 1955 to 1974. Similar to the Afghan "war rugs” made during the Soviet occupation, the simpler folk amongst us documented current events in their weavings. I traveled through this province back 2002 and did not find one single piece dating from this period although I di...

Very rare woman’s blanket from the Tiddim speaking, Northern Chin ethnic group who live in the Chin State, Burma next to India. This piece is circa 1950-1960, spun from commercial, hand dyed cotton thread with some single faced supplementary and diamond twill patterns. Please see enlargements to appreciate the complexity of this weave. There are a few small holes but noting egregious- obviously of interest to the specialist collector. L: 164cm/64.5in and W: 101cm/39.8in. See last enl...

Unusual dated woman’s sarong from Burma. This is hand loomed with a dancing girl motif, 1974 date (coincides with the forming of Burma’s 2nd constitution under Ne Win) and traditional Burmese pattern. It appears to be made of a combination of silk and synthetic fiber- the yellow threads are silk while the rest are “something else”. Possibly part of a dance troupe costume for a commemorative performance, interesting piece, the only dated one I have ever seen. There are s...

Rare antique silk Cambodian ikat lower garment. H: 90cm/35.5in L: 2.1m/7ft10in. with a twill weave; unique among Southeast Asian textiles. This skill died out during the reign of the Khmer Rouge and has not yet recovered the skills and technique to make a textile of this quality. The size of this piece indicates it would have been worn by an upper class family much like a pantaloon with center being passed through the legs and tucked into the waist. This is a very old style and may be ...
