Antique 19th century Japanese bronze planter. Measures 8 and three quarter inches high by 8 inches square.
A delightful example of the finely honed use of humor in Japanese Art as described so well in the book Playfulness in Japanese Art by Nobuo Tsuji, Spencer Museum of Art, 1986. This small bronze box is molded in a woven basket look with low relief figures of mice in human clothing on the top lid. Two smaller mice on the left are seen approaching two much larger mice on the right side of the lid the details in each is quite remarkable. The box measures 3 and one third inches long by 1 and one half inches wide and is three eighths inches deep. Excellent condition and patina.

Kazak wool rug, blue field with geometrics war motifs, 4' 5" x 2' 10". This Afghan carpet was woven in 2001 by a female weaver. Subtle army jeeps can be seen woven into the rugs design.This rug and others like it were consigned to us by an academic directly connected to the womens rights movement in Afghanistan. These "war rugs" clearly illustrate how the turmoil of war seeps into the artistic traditions of a people.
