Special offer: was $350-now $200. Classic greenware ewer with “yue” type glaze, from a southern kiln, most likely Zhejiang, possibly Fujian. I tend to lean to Zhejiang because of hardness of the clay. There is a repair on the rim and a few tiny chips at the end of the spout as well as fritting on one side of the body- all noted in enlargements. H: 17cm/6.8in and W: 12cm/4.8in.

Unusual pottery bowl with hand molded snake handle. I cannot find any pieces similar in style to this although the reddish clay and heavy potting are reminiscent of Hongshan pottery. This came out of China and has a good petrichor and water absorption on the base, very old- at least 2000 to 3000 years old but probably older. W: 14cm/5.5in and H: 12cm/4.7in.

Small early Islamic Central Asian Persian bowl decorated with a figure of a woman in the center and Arabic calligraphy on the rim.. Circa 9/10th CE. Very good condition, aside from typical frits on the rim. The red clay body was dipped in a white slip with decorative brown glaze- immersed in a final clear glaze to prevent the other colored glazes from running. This piece piece will clean up quite nicely. Fired at a moderate heat.. D: 19cm/7.5in and H: 6cm/2.3in.

Tang/Five Dynasties, stoneware jar with light olive green glaze and reddish clay body. The foot is rimless and concave.

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.

Good Tang Dynasty gray clay brick/tile depicting “Atlas” type, Yakshi figure seated on a lotus blossom. I was in Taxila, (cradle of Gandharan Civilization) and saw a similar figure. This illustrates the Greco/Roman influence in Tang art. The lotus shows indicates an obvious Buddhist connection. The left side of the face is molded a bit obscure, but no damage. An unsual piece, in that it is smaller than the other ones I have had- ergo cheaper shipping. H: 16cm/6.2in and W: 10cm/4.1...

Lovely pottery small lead glazed stove from the Eastern Han Dynasty (202 BCE – 220 CE). Minor fritting and a couple of chips on the upper corners, but overall, in very good condition for a two thousand year old piece. There are still random traces of the silver patina on the surface. I scraped off a small section the surface layer and a beautiful silver patina is revealed (see enlargement #7), up to the buyer of they want to clean the whole piece.

Very fine polished shouldered stone axe from the late Neolithic Period, Nan Province Thailand, near the Lao Border. I acquired a collection a few of these in 2009 and this is the best of the lot. The stone is very hard and cannot be scratched on the polished surface with steel. .It is in very good condition with only a couple chips on the softer part of a still serviceable cutting edge. This feels good in the hand and is incredibly thin given the length of it (please see side angle)...

Very rare small sandstone head of the Buddha in “Royal Attire”, Mon/Tongoo culture Burma circa 15th CE. An unusual and quirky piece I acquired in Mae Sai, Thailand, along the Burmese border, over 20 years ago. I bought a number of pieces (all fragments) made of sandstone and limestone and this is the last Jambupati image I have left. Since then I have never seen any again in Thailand or anywhere else. I was told they were dug up near Pegu (Bago) during a road construction project....

Exceptionally rare, handled drinking vessel from the Liao (Khitan) people, circa 907 CE to 1279 CE. There are very few Liao pottery pieces in collections today so this piece would of interest to anyone specializing in this period. Please note last enlargement for reference of a similarly shaped gilt silver piece dating form this period. This particular type of jar shows a much closer affinity with Central Asian cultures than the Han. There are two filled chips and crack on the handle, ...

Special Offer: Rare Yue glazed, four lugged jar with attractive “iron” spot from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-420). This piece is fully glazed on the outside with some degradation on the inner mouthrim, having said this the glaze is stable with no fritting- there is one tiny chip on edge of mouthrim and a firing chip on the base, which I would deem insignificant on this type of piece. The concave bottom and lack of firing support marks are indicative that this was from a Northern...
