China & South East Asia

This journey of this collection begins in South-East Asia, and wends its way to China. We begin on the island of Java, with three terracotta vessels shaped as mythical beasts, from the vast archipelagic Majapahit Empire in the 13th-16th centuries. We then head to Burma, and a traditional Dha sword, cast in iron and adorned with figures, inscriptions and floral ornaments. We finish in China, with a snuff bottle carved from agate and decorated with an idyllic landscape relief, dating to the 19th century.
