COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS

Rare 19th Century Porcelain Incense Burner / Vessel.  China.

  I love and have loved this piece for over 16 years!  I look at it everyday.  Markings and designs from the Ming Dynasty.  However, judging from the quality of the porcelain and the fire of the kiln, the late 1800s would be a more accurate date.  Many times later artisans imitated designs, stylings and […]

Stupa. Essence of Buddhahood. Silver Statue. Tibet

Perhaps the most common monument of Tibetan Buddhism.  It was introduced in the 7th Century representing the funeral mounds of its chief symbolic representation of Shakyamuni.  The dome was the shrine of the most sacred of objects. This stupa is made of a silver / nickel composite is comprised of two parts.  I acquired this […]

Authentic Neolithic Terracotta Large Vase / Pot / Container Amphora.  China

    A rare opportunity to purchase a Chinese Neolithic vase of this quality.   From the Clarence Warnock Collection.  Warnock was a renowned Indiana USA archeologist who spent – from the late 1920s to the early 1930s – exploring the ancient Colima ruins and opening the tombs on behalf of the Mexican government.  Most […]

Old Nepal / Tibet Turquoise Bead Necklace, Tibet

A stunning necklace with a rich history. Egg shaped brass beads with stones inserted.  Just look at all the photos.

Vintage Gilt Brass Green Glass Pedestal Compote Bowl.  Gryphon.  Griffin Handles.  France

    A truly stunning piece.    Here we have an emerald green sectioned glass bowl snugly fitted with a gilt brass mounted frame with a pedestal base with concave designs around it.   I was particularly struck with the elegance and detail on the gryphon handles.  Awesome!   No chips or repairs. A few […]

Dehua White Porcelain Kwan-yin Statue.  Buddha.  Guanyin.  Lotus blossom.  China.

    Guanyin . . .  the Bodhisattva known as Avalokitesvara… the Buddhist icon associated with compassion.   A stunning statue from the world famous Dehua kilns, located in the vicinity of the town of Dehua Xian, Fujian Province.  Most of my Dehua porcelain comes from a specific kiln in this vicinity . . .  […]

Primitive Bronze Censer or Incense Burner, Java Indonesia

Detail: Very unique with primitive figures and an incense burner shaped like a tureen with hinged lid. Vents on the lid as well as on the base. There is a warrior and – what looks to be – a hunted mythical beast. I have not been able to find any reference to such a rare […]

Celadon Ware Griffin Oil Lamp, China

Detail:  The stylings of this piece are from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-420 AD).  The original pieces were used specifically by court officials and the griffins were protective creatures.  Our Chinese agent secured it from a private home in Lishui in the Zhejiang Province.  It appears to have been repaired at one time.  Age  unknown.

Vintage Handmade Embroidered Vest. Thailand

Sequins, beads, multiple colored threads (gold, silver, pink, blue, purple & more) . . .  and some great designs (Burmese Dragons and Asian Elephant).  The dragons and elephant have a puffed / relief with backing that gives a dimensional effect.  Red satin liner.  Stunning. Woman’s size between small and medium. Nape of neck to bottom […]

Song Dynasty-styled Crackle Glaze Porcelain Vase, China

Detail:  Celadon crackle porcelain vase with a Song Dynasty styling.  A stunning piece.  Circa mid-1900’s.  In excellent condition.
