$150.USD 

Very rare and quirky phallic shaped small Bowenite- “Suzhou” jade hairpin from the Ming Dynasty, the woman I bought this from referred to it as the “gao” (a crude Cantonese expression for penis- so it’s not just my imagination) jade. Bowenite is not as hard as nephrite and amongst Chinese collectors is considered “soft jade”. L: 8.3cm/3.2in. The last enlargement is a reference from Chinese Jade by Jessica Rawson and was found in a tomb near Shanghai.

~Sold to Thailand, kap khun kap!~ $120.USD 

Good pair of Black Jadeite mythical “pixiu” animals adorned with coin- according to Chinese legend, they crave gold and silver and are said to bring their owners wealth.

It defends against morphogenic fie ...click for details

Elegant Jadeite “Bi” shaped pendant with excellent apple green highlights in the stone. This is an old carving that has been repolished, it should be noted that Burmese jade is usually dyed to enhance the green color which after a few years will fade and sometimes turn a brown color. This piece is over 50 years old so this is the original color which will not change over the passage of time. Free shipping via Hong Kong registered airmail include in purchase price.

Beautiful nephrite “belt” loop at least Qing Dynasty possibly earlier. This can be repurposed into a lovely pendant.

Rare nephrite jade arc shaped ceremonial jade with “dragon” heads at each end Neolithic era circa 4000 years old.

~Sold to Thailand, kap khun kap!~$430.USD 

Unusual nephrite jade incense burner with human face acquired from an American estate and dates circa mid 20th century. This piece has an Art Deco (IMHO) feel about it but is actually emulating a very famous Shang Dynasty “fanding” (cauldron) that was excavated in Henan in 1959 and is currently in the Capital Museum Beijing. Quite a bit of jade went into carving this piece, at 1100 grams and is in good condition. At highest point: 11.3cm/4.4on and W: 6.7cm/2.8in.
