$250.USD 

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.

$500.USD 

Elegant lobed Chinese quartz crystal “pendant”. As crystal is impossible to date scientifically, based on style I will estimate this piece is no later than Ming Dynasty and possibly as early as Tang Dynasty. Ceramics from the classic kilns in this shape were most common during the Song however, it was also found on Tang sancai wares and some Ming metal work. A one of kind piece- the only one I have ever seen! It is in perfect undamaged condition with a few minor inclusions and cloudiness ...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

$470.USD 

Rare incised decorative nephrite sword hilt from the Spring Autumn Period- 771-476 BCE. This piece is damaged so please examine enlargements carefully; of special note is the repair done on one side where a new piece of jade has been inserted and carved to match the original. This would make an excellent study piece to compare old techniques with the old. The lines in the new piece are lacking in strength and confidence that you find on an original piece, much like you would see on a forged ...click for details

~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ 

Two very rare carved turquoise toggles, circa Ming Dynasty (this is a conservative dating). The larger one is in the shape of the “endless knot”- shrivasta, a typical Buddhist symbol and the smaller one is of a flower. Turquoise has been used in China since early times, circa Shang Dynasty but mostly for inlay on bronze or beads. These have two holes each drilled through them suggesting they may have had a utilitarian purpose to them, such as some sort of binding fastener. Please note scale in ...click for details

Two chalcedony pendants circa Warring States to Han Dynasty. I have been told by knowledgeable jade collectors these used as curtain weights; please see last enlargement for referenced dating to at least Han Dynasty from Sparkling Splendours: The Taoshi Zhai Collection. There are a couple of inclusions in the smaller white one and some deep staining on the larger one indicating that this was buried with a metallic object for quite sometime. Scale is in enlargement 6. Both pieces have holes ...click for details

~Sold to Oz, cheers mate!~ 

Fine Hetian nephrite jade animal carving in the form of toad hiding beneath a leaf. In Chinese traditional philosophy this represents that even a humble toad when croaking beneath a leaf will make itself heard, (the leaf amplifying his voice). In context this was meant in terms of after a student passes his exams that he can make his virtues known. Early to mid 20th century the carving incorporates the original natural brown “skin” for the leaf. There is one chip on the leaf above the head noted ...click for details
