COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS

Old Investment Quality Jadeite Ram. Stand. China

Detail: Very old carved ram with a foo dog lid and mahogany base. This is high quality hard jade. I bought this from a New Orleans family who possessed it for over 4 generations. I believe it is at least 100+ years old. Perfect condition. I love the veins of color through this museum quality […]

Authentic Spear / Blowpipe / Blowgun. Rare. Orang Asli. Taman Negara. Malaysia

Detail: An old and impossible-to-find artifact. From the Orang Asli tribe in the Taman Negara, one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Most likely early 1900’s. Hole on the blow end has been sealed with a wax or resin. The other end – near the spearhead – is open. The spear was primarily used […]

Authentic K’iche Mayan Wooden Dance Mask. Conquistador. Spaniard. Ceremonial. Guatemala.

The ceremony or dance associated with this mask is the Baile de la Conquista. The theme is a re-enactment of the 1524 invasion lead by Spanish Conquistador Don Pedro de Alvarado against the recruited Tecun Uman, one of the last rulers of the K’iche Maya people. The mask has been well used but generally is […]

Exceptionally Detailed Robed Dehua Porcelain Statue, China

Elegant and graceful statue. Great detail especially on the adornment beads, hands, face and headgear.

Stunning Copper / Turquoise / Coral Pot / Container. Alms. Tibet

This is just gorgeous! Inlaid with turquoise, coral and metal designs, you will have difficulty finding this anywhere. Even designs on the bottom are detailed and quite elegant. Circa early- to mid-1900s. NOT Chinese made. For the Serious Collector.

Extremely Rare. Archaic Jade and Bronze Censer. Scholar Urn. China

A very unique composition mix yielding a stately vessel. Called a Scholar Censer (incense burner) most likely because of the scholar statue – with lute in arm – on the top of the lid. The designs are a mix of graphic elements, geckos and birds, as seen around the mid-section of the vessel. Very rare […]

Sanxingdui Treasured Stamps Album, Issued by Sichuan Province Philatelic Corporation.

This album commemorates ancient gold masks from China and Egypt. On October 12, 2001, China and Egypt jointly issued a set of stamps in two pieces titled, “Ancient Gold Masks”. They featured the gold mask unearthed in Sanxingui and the Toutankhamon (Pharaoh of the ancient Egypt) gold mask. This is a great stamp book for […]

Bronze Tang-style Horse. Gold Gilt. Engravings. China

Bronze composition with gold gilt. Gorgeous engravings on its neck, front shoulder and hind quarters (dragon and phoenix). There is another horse listed that is quite similar (see Item S-0203). There is a slight variation in stance and head tilt.

Hand Carved Bakota Fertility / Lucky Mask, Gabon Africa

Beautifully hand carved from Gabon’s Bakota tribe. Many of these masks are made to enhance fertility and/or add luck with hunting and other ventures. Circa late-1900’s. Pristine condition. Stand not included.
