Pieces from this period are much sought after by Chinese collectors since quality has since then declined...

Very fine old wool pangden cloth- all hand spun wool and natural dyes. This piece is an exceptionally large piece consisting of 5 panels, circa 40 to 50 years old. I have had quite a few of these in the past and this is one of best I have seen. The weave is very tight and heavy and would make an excellent small blanket or throw rug. In the past these were worn by married women, but these days they are a fashion accoutrement for the modern Tibetan woman...

Very rare lacquer box with geometrical pattern and convex shaped lid and bottom. The lacquer is quite thick on this piece with unusual motif. I have only seen two boxes in this style which came out of Yunnan, China, so these may have been made as trade items to Yi minority who seem to make similar, though less sophisticated, patterned lacquer pieces. This was made in the first half of the 20th century, and except for a chip on the lid surface it is in excellent condition...

Ten jade perforated untreated Jadeite discs, circa late 1880 to 1950. These retail for about $30.USD each in a Hong Kong. I acquired from a Hong Kong jade dealer going out of business due to the ever increasing rents here. Average diameters are between 2cm and 2.5cm and thickness between 2mm and 4mm. These were imported into Hong Kong during the 1980s when local dealers could buy direct from Chinese government owned Arts and Curios Department (usually by the kilo)...
