$150.USD 

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

$120.USD 

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 ha ...click for details

$400.USD 

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. See last enlargements for reference from Simon Kwan’s: Early Chinese Glass, pgs. 392-393 ...click for details

~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

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 (possibly Japanese) 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 ...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.
