Ensemble of ancient cylindrical and tapered beads. The agate beads came out of Cambodia (4 have faint bands in the center), and date circa 5th to 6th Century (either Chenla or Funan Kingdoms), although most online sources say these are Dong Son. The two carnelian beads came out of China but could have just easily come originally from Central Asia, and are certainly quite old. Scale is in cm. Free shipping via Hong Registered Airmail.

Han green glazed censer with little bear legs. Much of the lead glaze has turned white with a some silver patina. There is some minor glaze loss and one of the legs has been repaired (examine enlargements). Han ”hill jars” come in this general style but are smaller and have much thicker walls, I have seen similar this type in unglazed pottery, which makes this style quite rare, D: 24cm/9.5in and H: 16cm/6.2

Eighteen bead strand of quartz crystal. These were excavated from the Tak Hilltop Burial Site in along the Thai Burmese border, and can be dated at least to the 14th century due to the ceramics found in the same strata. I am however of the opinion these are much earlier probably at least 1500 years old or more as similar pieces are found in the Neolithic/Bronze Age Lopburi Sites. These are strung on an expandable elastic string with an interior circumference of 17cm/6.8in. Actual...

Wonderful pottery image of a “foreigner” from the Tang Dynasty. He has a powerful life like face, with deep set eyes, a beak like nose and intense expression. He is in a semi seated position and is most likely a soldier because of the leather “armored” trousers. No damage (that I can find) and all original. H: 25cm/9.9in.

Good strand of quartz crystal beads (and a few carnelians) excavated from the Tak Burial site near. Mae Sot along the Thai/Burmese border.
