A RARE CHINESE BRONZE INCENSE SPATULA FOR THE SCHOLAR’S TABLE, 17TH ~ 18TH CENTURY.

In his book “The Second Bronze Age, Later Chinese Metalwork”, 1991, Paul Moss illustrates an incense spatula with an Islamic inscription. In his description he notes the rarity of incense tools compared to censers and describes his spatula with Islamic inscription as doubly rare, noting that he had never seen another example. Well, here is another example and in many ways it is similar to the Moss ex...

A GOOD & LARGE CHINESE ARCHITECTURAL CLOISONNE PANEL, EARLY 19TH CENTURY

The panel is decorated with an arrangement of items normally found on a scholar’s table, including a jue and a xian, illustrating delight in ancient forms. The enamels are bright, though the panel is dirty, and many mixed colours are used. The panel is made from one large sheet of copper and the fire-gilded border is attached with rivets. Large panels of Chinese cloisonné appear to be very rare, difficult to make ...

AN UNUSUAL CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE VASE, 18TH/19TH CENTURY.

I’ve owned this rare vase for a good number of years and had never seen another until a baluster shape example with this unusual decoration was sold on eBay last year or perhaps the year before. I was always interested in trying to discover the name for this decoration and a couple of years ago I purchased one of those Beijing auction books on Qing ceramics where a detail shot of the technique was shown and attributed to the ...

A Chinese Bamboo carving of a Mountain, 19th century.

The mountain is perhaps mythical and magical with a myriad of tiny figures depicting immortals. The use of a distorted viewpoint to depict the boats and river is most attractive and interesting. Large bamboo carvings are scarce now and are rarely found outside of the major auction rooms.

19.1/2 inches high. The condition is very good but there are a few chips and the odd missing figure. Some age cracking. A chip to the edge of th...

A black-tailed white crane braves tempestuous seas before the massive orb of a blood red rising sun in this sensational late Edo period Kano style scroll. From the right a sinewy tree loaded with exaggerated fruits hangs precariously from the green face of a sheer cliff, its wild branches running helter-skelter through the dark sphere. Mist retreats beyond the horizon, regrouping for another night. A very unorthodox scene, each wave scratched out with soft gray, foam flying from the bird and ...

An extraordinary scene unravels in this raucous tumbling Literati scroll by Kyotos Shirakura Niho (b. 1896) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. An inscription in the box lid names the scene The Hermitage West of Kamo (River) called Taka-Ike-Kyo. A solitary man looks up from his reading toward open ground, his thatched hovel lost in a jumble of bamboo flanking the steep falls rushing white through the foliage. The vibrant work harkens to the radical Taisho period, when Nanga and Japane...
