Pottery head of a female court attendant from the Han Dynasty. A lovely face with sensitive features, original red pigments on face, this image embodies the most classic style of Han sculpture. There is an iron armature in the neck that was most likely part of a new restoration. Special offer: if you are a clever bunny and have deft hands at restoration I’ll include the entire image for an additional $50.00. The head and body appear to be “matched” but am not sure if they are married...

Rare statue of a woman and child standing from Sichuan, Han Dynasty. Very poignant image of a small child leaning into its mother. The image though quite simple is very emotive capturing the feeling affection between them. There may some repair behind the head as the clay has a different color and texture but it is the same hardness and color when I scratch it, so in all honesty it is difficult to tell, for sure either way. H: 22.5cm.

Rare pair of gray stoneware Cizhou typen jars with white slip, clear glaze and appliqué human figures on the neck, circa Southern Song to Yuan Dynasties. Usually this style is found in a Qingbai glaze and these are the only ones I have seen in Cizhou. Possibly these were not meant to have lids as the mouth rim is glazed (normally if Chinese ceramic piece has a lid, the mouthrim is left unglazed)...

Large Khmer pedestal jar circa 12th century with dark brown glaze. This piece has a large restoration to the top - normally the neck would be much longer but this has taken the piece from another, of the period jar, and attached it to this. Overall the glaze is excellent on this piece and has retained its elegance. H: 30cm/12in and D: 23cm/9in. This piece is quite heavy and weighs 3.5kg.
