Tang to possibly Five Dynasties, stoneware jar with light olive green glaze and reddish clay body. The foot is rimless and concave.

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...
