~Sold to the U.K., cheers~!$250.USD 

Very rare Chinese glass vase with molded Han Dynasty hunting scene, taotie mask handles and hobnail pattern. This was represented to me as Republic Period, 1912-1949 but I am not sure, as references in English regarding this genre is non existent (as far as I know). This is certainly an old piece, having lived in Hong Kong for over 25 years this is the only one I have ever seen, so I will date this circa 1950s -1960s. Having said this it does resemble American Depression era glass in terms ...click for details

$400.USD 

Unusual “pile” of old glass cylinder beads picked up in Mae Sot, Thailand along the Burmese border about 6 years ago and are from Burma. These were meant for Victorian Era, British colonials who most likely used them for beaded curtains. I assuming these are of Bohemian, Czech manufacture but am certain that they are old- circa late 19th/early 20th century. There are 20 strands with around 20 8cm beads per strand and total length of 1.75cm/5ft9in ea, so about 400 beads. A few are broken but ...click for details

~Sold to China, xie xie ni!~ $320.USD 

Strand of beautiful old Chinese beads. References on Chinese glass is scant but I did find one with a similar spiral pattern dated to the mid Qing Dynasty (see last enlargement) circa 17th century. In my own personal opinion I think these are much older; probably earlier than Song- based on the color of blue. Anyway I will guarantee these to be at least Qing. Metric scale is enlargements. These are strung on an elastic cord and may be worn as a bracelet.

Fine Qing Dynasty glass archer’s ring emulating white jade. Glass archer’s rings are much rarer than jade one’s, given the fragility of the material. There are two “fleabite” sized chips noted in second enlargement and scale is noted in metric in the last.

$140.USD 

Quirky glass ring emulating agate. This piece came from China but possibly is a trade object. I acquired this in a lot of other ancient pieces. A conservative dating to this is Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and guarantees it to this period. There is one crack as well as some bubble burst pitting on the surface. Outer D: 2.8cm and inner D: 1.9cm.

~Sold~ 

Fine and rare ensemble of crystal and Chinese trade beads. The emerald green beads are quite unusual in their large size and color, made in China in the 19th century, these were specifically created for the diverse ethnic groups of Southwest China and their neighbors who employed them in jewelry making and textile fringe designs. Some of the beads are fused together and were originally part of a much longer “tube”. These were intentionally made this way so they could be easily snapped off ...click for details

$300.USD 

Exceptionally rare pair of semi opaque white glass perforated discs from the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE). These originally were meant to be a cheap substitute for white jade funeral items, but given the fragility of glass they are more uncommon. The small (D: 4.4cm/1.8in) one has a fairly recent hairline crack and the large (D: 5.8cm/2.3in) one has some minor old chipping on the edge.

$150.USD 

Fine and rare Qing 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.
