Nice old inkstone, circa Republic Era or earlier, with “bat in the” clouds motif, denoting good fortune. There is an owner’s name incised in traditional cursive script, Xuehong Zhang Yu, on the bottom and added later. A lovely little piece that embraces the natural shape of the stone into its design. This is an unusually thick piece, which in contemporary times would have been cut in two, to better utilize the value of the material...

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.

Old hand carved wooden ink pad box circa first half 20th century. I think this is probably a Yao item, but as I purchased it in a Bai ethnic minority market in Yunnan, almost 20 years ago, we’ll assume it is Bai. This has a floral pattern carved on the lid. The ink has long ago dried up. Nice natural patina. L: 7.2cm/2.9in x W: 5.8cm/2.3in x H: 3.2cm/1.3in.

Pair of matched naturally stressed wooden plaques with “couplet”, encouraging harmony and peace. Traditionally Chinese write to right to left so the meaning of the board on the right encourages one to “admit your mistakes to avoid trouble in the world” while the one on the left, encourages one to “be tolerant, to live in peace”. It has been suggested to me that these may be have been hung in an old Kung Fu studio as this would express the spirit of martial arts...
