Oriental Works of Art
Oriental Lacquer Box in the form of a DuckPrice: £25
This is an amusing trinket box in the form of a duck made from black lacquer with gilt decoration, the lid with wings and a feathered tail and the head with gilt eyes and beak. The base has a simple band of a repeating gilt geometric design. The form resembles the well known Chinese export porcelain 'goose' tureens made in the eighteenth century and since the lacquer technique here resembles that of other contemporary Chinese pieces a provenance from China seems likely. The whimsical style also suggests a date of manufacture in the 1960s or 1970s.
Pair of Mughal style frames c. 1900Price: £50
This is a beautiful pair of frames from the British Raj occupation of India that lasted between 1858 and 1947. They are carved wood in the typical Mughal style with carved flowers with lattice work. The photos appear to be original with an officer and two young children. This would have been three frames that would have been connected with hinges for a table.

Set of 4 Chinese Scroll WeightsPrice: £25
This is a very nice set of four scroll weights with different images on the front and the zodiac on the back. They don't seem to be silver but rather silver metal. There is no plating missing so they are either in great condition or they are not plated but are rather a silver metal. Apologies but we have no way of testing silver.
