Classic buff pottery ox from the Tang Dynasty- a very sturdy and well sculpted piece. This would clean up very nicely with just a soak, a rinse and possibly a soft bristled tooth brush. I left the mud on because it shows the traces of mineralized plant roots and some collectors like that “in situ” look. Excellent condition, no damage. Can clean if any buyer wants me to but this will result in the loss of the white pigment under the dirt. L: 16cm/6.2in and H: 11cm/4.2in.

Lovely Dian Kingdom chalcedony “nipple bead” circa 400 BCE to 100 BCE, with “moonlike” translucence. These button like ornaments were unique to this culture, they were used in decorating bronze buckles, funeral shrouds as well as clothing and strung as beads. Quite rare these days- I haven’t seen a “fresh” pieces on market for several years. The Dian were a fierce and independent kingdom living in the vicinity of Dianchi Lake, Yunnan Province which chronologically pa...

The stone is very hard and cannot be scratched on the polished surface with stainless steel and is in very good condition with only a couple chips on the softer part of a still serviceable cutting edge. This piece feels good in the hand and is ...

Lovely gray pottery head of a smiling woman from the Han Dynasty, Sichuan province. Early funerary art from Sichuan is quite distinct from the Han from the Central Plains of Shaanxi. In general Han Sichuan images show more emotion in their expressions and are far less abstract. Prior to their assimilation during the Qin Dynasty, Sichuan was composed of ethnically and politically separate non Han cultures. In my opinion this can be easily seen in the temperament and style of their a...

Tang to possibly Five Dynasties, stoneware jar with light olive green glaze and reddish clay body. The foot is rimless and concave. There is a “Jun” type glaze run on the body noted in enlargements- probably unintentional but interesting nonetheless. I have done simple repair on the mouth by filling a shallow chip and applying a layer of gold leaf. H: 12cm/4.8in and D: 9cm/3.5in.
