Fine and rare Ming Dynasty, emulating white Jade, belt fastener made of glass. There are a few tiny chips but they are too small to photograph. Glass artifacts in good condition are more difficult to find than Jade given its fragility. In the center there is a “Shou”-Chinese longevity character, surrounded by cloud scrolls and a meander pattern on the perimeter. L: 6cm/2.3in and W: 4.6cm/1.8in.

325.oo Rare Yue glazed, four lugged jar with attractive “iron” spot from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-420). This piece is fully glazed on the outside with some degradation on the inner mouthrim, having said this the glaze is stable with no fritting- there is one tiny chip on edge of mouthrim and a firing chip on the base, which I would deem insignificant on this type of piece. The concave bottom and lack of firing support marks are indicative that this was from a Northern Kiln, po...

Good strand of quartz crystal beads (and a few carnelians) excavated from the Tak Burial site near. Mae Sot along the Thai/Burmese border. Artifacts from this dig are from 14th/16th CE due to datable ceramics that were found in the same strata, but having said this, these are much older, as similar beads and have been found in the Ban Chiang and Lopburi (Bronze Age sites) and have been traded in the region for at least 2000 years. The center amethyst bead is from China- Dali region- ...

Nice strand of Kushan/Bactrian of mixed stone (mostly carnelian) beads. I acquired these along with coins dating from 1st- 4th CE from the same site in North West Pakistan, so these can be dated no later than 1500 years old. There are a few agate and quartzite beads in the lot, some with traces of “etching”. The crescent shaped beads would have originally small ringed shaped ornaments that have been drilled and “knapped” to some extent to accommodate them being strung. Please note that t...

Very fine polished shouldered stone axe from the late Neolithic Period, found in Nan Province Thailand near the Lao Border.

The stone is very hard and cannot be scratched on the polished surface with stainless steel and is in excellent condition with only a couple chips, still serviceable cutting edge.

Fine Han period, large, bronze ding from the Nanyue Kingdom circa, 100BCE, Southern China Sometimes referred to as the Nam Viet 南越, they were considered a vassal state by the Han, although for much of the time they functioned as an independent kingdom administering their own affairs.

There was layer of mud put on this to hide the repair and I have removed as a much as possible just so you know it’s there but is not glaringly obvious. Nice size, this animal embodies the spirit of the ancient “Silk Road”, if not Xi Jin Ping’s “One Belt One Road Initiative”. H: 32.5cm/...

Pottery head of a female court attendant from the Han Dynasty. A lovely face with sensitive features, original red pigments on face, this image embodies the most classic style of Han sculpture. There is an iron armature in the neck that was most likely part of a new restoration.

The head and body appear to be “matched” but am not sure if they are married...

Rare statue of a woman and child standing from Sichuan, Han Dynasty. Very poignant image of a small child leaning into its mother. The image though quite simple is very emotive capturing the feeling affection between them. There may some repair behind the head as the clay has a different color and texture but it is the same hardness and color when I scratch it, so in all honesty it is difficult to tell, for sure either way. H: 22.5cm.

Lovely Dian Kingdom chalcedony “nipple bead” circa 400 BCE to 100 BCE, with “moonlike” translucence.

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...

Large Khmer pedestal jar circa 12th century with dark brown glaze. This piece has a large restoration to the top - normally the neck would be much longer but this has taken the piece from another, of the period jar, and attached it to this. Overall the glaze is excellent on this piece and has retained its elegance. H: 30cm/12in and D: 23cm/9in. This piece is quite heavy and weighs 3.5kg.

Exceptionally rare, grey pottery, recumbent tiger, circa Han Dynasty. So far this is the only one I have ever seen, outside of a book.

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.

Rare high fired gray, hand sculpted relief, pottery wall tile- circa Song/Jin Dynasty depicting two mounted elephants engaged in battle. This has the original red, green and white pigments, which are still quite vivid after almost 1000 years. This is most likely from Shanxi Province. The depiction of “war elephants” is quite unusual, in that as far as I know, they were never used in China although some Southeast Asian kingdoms and India used them. No damage or repair, although the ...
