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 […]
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 […]
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.

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