$100.USD 

One of a kind quirky Thai pangolin amulet carved from bone with Khon script signifying this has some spiritual meaning. I have never seen one of these before- possibly used as knife in symbolic blood letting rituals where the shaman cuts out “evil” from his patient. Probably about 30 year old this is a lovely abstract interpretation of a Scaly Anteater. L: 13cm/5.2in.

~Sold to the U.S., thank you~ $150.USD 

Antique Lanna Thai bone amulet carved into the shape of a tiger with a few religious Khon script characters inscribed on it which usually indicates it was carved or consecrated by a monk who specializes in this type of magic. One’s that are made by famous monks are quite valuable and much sought after in Thailand. As provenance is difficult to determine unless you get one direct from a monk, I am selling this as an antique, will guarantee to it be early 20th century based on the wear and conditi ...click for details

$100.USD 

Rare phallic charm from Lamphun Northern Thailand- serendipitously enough, where they have an annual sausage festival. Originally these were worn by men at the waist and were thought to protect the wearer from any harm to his penis and in a more general sense they also are believed to bring luck especially in terms of “wealth generating or protection”, so a woman might keep one in her cash box to increase cash flow or purse to prevent it being “snatched”. These have their origins in the Khmer cu ...click for details

$130.USD 

Nice old wooden Ba Gua, circa early 20th century. Since no two feng shui masters can agree on the same thing there is a lot of room for interpretation on the meaning of each one. These are usually hung over or near a house entrance to ward off bad luck and evil sprits. This one is unusual in that it incorporates a Buddhist element in center of the trigrams in the form of Guanyin. Above it, are three immortals and a bat beneath which represents wealth. Excellent condition (there is one kno ...click for details
