Finely detailed carved bamboo bitong with five panels depicting classic three friends of winter and scholar themes. I bought this in Guangxi Zhuang, China in the 1995, so a 1950 to 1960 a (possibly Republic) dating seems reasonable. There is a hole intentionally drilled at the bottom, otherwise excellent condition. H: 13.4cm/5.2in and D: 6.8cm/2.8in.

Collection of 5 silver Gaden Tangka Tibetan coins minted between 1840 and 1930. Frequently (and erroneously) called Dalai Lama coins which were struck as presentation gifts to monks in the late 1940s- were made of pure silver, these are approximately 70% silver mixed with 30% copper. The most common issues are from 1897 to 1925 and will date these as such. Reference: Oriental Numismatics Society, Occasional Paper #17, N.G. Rhodes 1983. These are quite attractive pieces with Tib...

Exceptionally rare, fine large Cizhou ware black glazed bowl with hare’s fur marking and russet splashes circa Jin/Yuan Dynasty. This is from a Henan kiln- the unusual brown clay and cutting of the foot is similar to Jun Wares in the National Palace Museum, Taipei- dated to the Yuan Dynasty. The body is very thin compared to others from this genre with an excellent high iron content patina. D: 17.7cm/7in and H: 7.3cm/2.9in. The pictures do no...

Fine and rare 19th century, 2 paneled, ceremonial men’s “bell” cape (khing ta zhi) from the Southern Chin ethnic group in Burma- this piece would have been worn during religious and planting festivals. This is unique, in being woven with nettle fiber rather than cotton. The weaving is quite delicate and complicated; I put a single grain of rice to highlight the intricate and minute details of the blue and red alternating points. The bells come mainly from India and have a very sweet sound....

Extremely rare matched pair of large (possibly one of a kind), Liao Dynasty, greenish brown (khaki) glazed Gangwa ware jars from the Chifeng Kiln, Inner Mongolia. The Liao were a non Han culture that ruled in Manchuria and parts of Mongolia 907-1125 CE. This shape is fairly unique to Liao ceramics as it seeks to emulate Turkic West Asian metal work drinking vessels. There is fritting on the edge of the shoulder and mouthrim (clearly visible in enlargements) but otherwise in good ...

Stunning bronze sword handle from the Dian Kingdom that paralleled the Han Dynasty. Judging from the heavy triangular pommels and spikes near the blade, these were designed for close quarter combat that would look right at home in a fight scene out of Game of Thrones. This has a classic azurite patina with traces of the original iron blades. The Dian were a fierce and independent kingdom living in the vicinity of Dianchi Lake in Yunnan Province which chronologically paralleled the Wa...
