$250.USD 

Fine strand of cobalt blue trade Chinese blue glass beads circa Ming Dynasty. These were excavated from the Tak Burial site near. Mae Sot along the Thai/Burmese border. These can be reliable dated to least 14th/16th centuries due to known and datable ceramics that were found in the same strata. These were cherry picked for their consistency in color, as usually I can only get mixed strands. See enlargement for scale and condition. L: 58cm/23.5in.

Fine strand of quartz crystal beads (and a few carnelians) excavated from the Tak Burial site near. Mae Sot along the Thai/Burmese border. These can be reliable dated to least 14th/16th centuries due to known and datable ceramics that were found in the same strata, but having said these can be much older as stone beads and have been traded in the region for at least 2000 years.

$300.USD 

Strand of Yuan to Ming Dynasty glass trade beads excavated from the Tak Hilltop burial site along the Thai Burmese border. Because of the 14th to 16th CE ceramics found the same strata it is easy to date these beads being from no later than this period, although archaic jade items over a thousand years old were found as well, these were most likely ancient trade items that have been circulating for over a millennia. Scale is in enlargements. For the exception of some roughly facete ...click for details

Strand of Khmer glass beads circa 11th to 12th century. Generically classed as Indo Pacific Trade Beads, were probably not actually made in Cambodia but were traded to them. These are the only complete strand I have found in this translucent color, possibly they were trying to emulate carnelian. L: 60cm/24.6in

Superb circa 6th CE long tapered tube shaped Pre Khmer banded agate bead, I acquired this about 13 years ago in Thailand; at that time I was told it came out of Cambodia. Recently I came across a photo reference for this type of bead- Khmer Gold: Gifts for the Gods: Emma Bunker and Douglas Lateford, which identifies this as pre 6th century which would make it either Chenla or Funan Kingdoms, and excavated in Banteay Meanchy Province, Cambodia, which backs up the original provenance.

Interesting set of six amber glass beads. These came out of Cambodia but are of Chinese manufacture and would date circa Song to Yuan (1000-1400CE) which coincides to the Khmer Empire when there was a lot of trade was carried on between these two kingdoms. I have two references for this kind of bead referring to them as to either Liao or Ming. These probably have a more prosaic function being buttons, but having said this are the only ones I have seen and given their fragility few have ...click for details

Good long rectangular aventurine bangle from early central Thai Bronze Age Lopburi Culture circa 500 BC. There is some damage on one end, well documented in enlargements. Aventurine is commonly mistaken for Jade as it has the same degree of hardness (6.5 Mohs scale rating). This is really a lovely stone and may be worn as a pendent (free fauxsilk macraméd cord included) The hole that runs the length of the bead is obstructed, either packed with dirt or unfinished but I am not go ...click for details
