From the old capital of Kandy in the hill country of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, this primitive bone carving represents a Singhalese king. Carving on the face and upper body of the figure is quite primitive and contrasts with finer detailing in the swirling patterns on the long skirt, which ends in carved, comb-like teeth. The surface of the large, heavy bone is darkened with age except for one area on the right near the hand, which is white and worn smooth...

19th Century Nepalese Shaman Sculpture with traces of yellow and red pigment and an incredible, dense, dark patina. So thick and dark is the amazing patina that the necklace that covers the chest and back, and the carvings on the skirt, are barely visible. The hole on the bottom indicates that this was likely the handle of a dagger or staff. The old customs seal is also on the bottom. 8 inches, 20 cm. Very Good Condition.

Eighteen maharajah turban plumes encircle this sterling silver bracelet from 1930s India. The maharajah rulers of Rajasthan adopted the plume-shaped turban ornaments they called "sarpech" from the Mughals. Made of feathers and jewels, worn pointing skyward from their turbans, the plumes became symbolic of the colorful princely rulers. An inventive jewelry maker from India's Jain minority used the distinctive sarpech shape as the design motif for this bracelet...

The sterling weight is 240 grams. Hindu imagery is repeated in five linear segments arranged around the cuff. Leading the iconic parade is the Hindu Goddess Kali, seen as the head of the sacred cow. Next is an antelope, symbol of nature and king of the animals, followed by a lion, emblem of strength and protection...

The exact reason of why these blankets are given to the Naga is a bit obscure...

Well carved mask from Nepal. This is made from a heavy, densely grained hardwood (but stained a darker color); with an old Nepalese rupee set in the forehead and an animal hide goatee and toupee’. I really don’t know much about this piece other than it came from Nepal. It is very thoughtfully crafted, and not a massed produced tourist piece of chachke. There is one chip on the side, H: 23.5cm/9.2in and 15.5cm/6.1in.

Lapis and carnelian stones in an ornate setting mounted on a band of light, feathery etching is somehow evocative of Nepal where this bracelet originated. The bracelet is sized relatively large and, while it can be adjusted, may fit and look best when worn over a heavy sweater or jacket cuff. From the late 20th century, the piece is in excellent condition. We do not know the silver content but suspect it is relatively low as is typical for jewelry from Nepal...

A Rajasthani botanical miniature on handmade paper by Bikaner artist Raju Swami is green and gold with deep gold flowers shading to orange/red. An exotic white butterfly hovers over the meticulously veined flowers. Bikaner, a remote walled desert town in western India, has a miniaturist tradition in both Mughal and Rajasthani styles. This artist, who grinds his own mineral colors and makes his own brushes that sometimes consist of only a few squirrel hairs, produces particularly fine botanicals...
