Reduced price (previously $530): One hundred jade perforated untreated Jadeite discs, circa late 1880 to 1950. These were acquired from a Hong Kong jade dealer going out of business due to the ever increasing rents here. Average diameters are between 2cm and 2.5cm and thickness between 2mm and 4mm. These were imported into Hong Kong during the 1980s when local dealers could buy direct from Chinese government owned Arts and Curios Department (usually by the kilo). This meant t...

Lovely carved nephrite pendant with classic “cat on a leaf” motif. This piece has been re-carved to appear as the cat is sitting on a peapod (peapods being one of the myriad of Chinese symbols wishing one to have many children), but was really done to hide the damage on the sides of a larger leaf. This sill retains it’s essence of “kittyness” as she reposes languidly on the leaf. L: 7cm/2.8in. Free shipping via Hong Kong Registered Airmail.

Stunning white nephrite replica of Western Zhou Dynasty of an anthropomorphic “supplicant” figure. This is what I would call a good “honest copy”. The lines on this piece are reminiscent of a Tlingit Native American image while the overall shape has an Aztec feel. This is a hand carved piece in the sense it was made by the human eye and hand although using a mechanized tool. There is an inclusion at the bottom that transverses the lower quarter. Included is an adjustable ma...

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...
