Exceptionally rare, handled drinking vessel from the Liao (Khitan) people, circa 907 CE to 1279 CE. There are very few Liao pottery pieces in collections today so this piece would of interest to anyone specializing in this period. Please note last enlargement for reference of a similarly shaped gilt silver piece dating form this period. This particular type of jar shows a much closer affinity with Central Asian cultures than the Han. There are two filled chips and crack on the handle, ...

Rare strand of quartz crystal beads (and a few carnelians) excavated from the Tak Burial site near, Mae Sot along the Thai/Burmese border. I acquired these about 10 years in Thailand, these were the last lot I could find, and are very difficult to get these nowadays unless you want to buy single beads. Artifacts from these digs are from 14th/16th CE due to datable ceramics that were found in the same strata, but having said this, these are much older, as similar beads and have been foun...

Very fine polished shouldered stone axe from the late Neolithic Period, Nan Province Thailand, near the Lao Border. I acquired a collection a few of these in 2009 and this is the best of the lot. The stone is very hard and cannot be scratched on the polished surface with steel. .It is in very good condition with only a couple chips on the softer part of a still serviceable cutting edge. This feels good in the hand and is incredibly thin given the length of it (please see side angle)...

Lovely gray pottery head of a woman from the Han Dynasty, Sichuan province. Early funerary art from Sichuan is quite distinct from the Han from the Central Plains of Shaanxi. In general Han Sichuan images show more emotion in their expressions and are far less abstract. Prior to their assimilation during the Qin Dynasty, Sichuan was composed of ethnically and politically separate non Han cultures. In my opinion this can be easily seen temperament and style of their art. This ima...
