Ensemble of 4 Lanna Thai Buddhist reading implements (analogous to a Yad Torah Pointer). Used to mark pages and point out words while reciting a sutra from a Buddhist manuscript, i.e. individual pages sandwiched between two small wooden planks. The one with most vivid gold looks to have been re lacquered- circa 50 to 90 years old. Check enlargements for size.

Fine old “daunlang khwelan” serving tray from the Shan State, Myanmar (most likely Inle Lake). Made circa 1920 – 1950 and signed on the bottom.

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.

Unusual “pile” of old glass cylinder beads picked up in Mae Sot, Thailand along the Burmese border about 10 years ago. These are from Burma and were probably meant for Victorian Era, British colonials who used them for beaded curtains. I assuming these are of Bohemian, Czech manufacture but am certain that they are old- circa late 19th/early 20th century. There are 20 strands with around 20, 8cm beads per strand and total length of 1.75cm/5ft9in ea, i.e. about 400 beads...

Very rare post Khmer Buddha, circa 16th century, small standing Buddha displaying with uncommon “namaskara” mudra. The head broke from the neck (and subsequently repaired- see enlargements) off revealing a ceramic core and the most of the robe on the left side is missing. Lovely patina. This piece will stand on its own but I do suggest that it be propped up or fixed onto something. H: 13.5cm/5.2in.
