Terrific full tang Samurai arrowhead. Head shows some darkening but no pitting so would polish out quite nicely although it looks fine as is. Full length is 20cm with the head being about 3.4cm. Very thick diamond shaped head would create a wound that would have difficulty healing. I would conservatively put the age at late Edo period but could easily be far older then 19th century. Very nice, hard to find item.

Very attractive Koro cover with tasteful openwork on copper base. The openwork features a 16 petal Kiku mon paired with an Ume or plum blossom. The two are directly portrayed together at the top so this pairing may have been part of a wedding gift. Nice, high dome gives this a full look. Opening measures out at 75mm from rim edge to rim edge. Overall height is 50mm and overall width is 90mm.

Nice little German bicycle club. Central emblem shows a bicycle over the black white ad red national colors, below which reads ALL HEIL. Nice gilt oak leaf wreath around the bicycle. The back piece is a large ribbon with oak leaves and acorns. The silver wash on this back ribbon is well worn but all in all an interesting and attractive pin. Construction typical of 1920's to early 1930's.

Lovely German antler rack with Black Forest style wood mount. This rack is on the small side and oddly shaped. I know misshapen antlers such as this do have a niche collector base. The mount is a pressed wood particle composite that was just begginning to be used for this purpose in the 1920's. This one has a sticker on the back that is mostly rubbed off and illegible. I have another rack that is the same style and the sticker is legible on that one (See last photo on this listing)...

Very nice mounted antler rack. This is a nice set of antlers typical to German deer. This is actually a rather good size pair measuring 8 inches from base of antler to the tip. The tag on the back indicates that the wood mount was made in Austria. Interestingly it specifically mentions Osterreich which was the name used for Austria from the beginning of German occupation to the end of WWII in 1945. This is helpful as it pinpoints the exact age of this set of antlers to 1945 at the latest...

Fascinating Islamic style powder horn. I would date this at 18th century but may go into beginning of 19th century. The horn itself is a ram horn with its beautiful and distinctive ridges. This is the type of horn used for Judaic Shofar so certainly is right for the area. Very pleasing metal work throughout with openwork around the whole piece. Condition is excellent with everything present and in good shape and no cracking to the horn. Measures right at one foot from tip to tip...

Exceptional quality Indo Persian shield dating to late 18th or early 19th century. Gold and silver floral design throughout obverse. At one point gold and silver relief was entirely offset by fine black enamel work. Over the centuries the black enamel has largely worn from the center, raised section but remains thick on the lower, outer portions. This does afford the piece an honest and tasteful aged appearance...

This sword stand was made by a good friend of mine who is half carpenter and half artist. The listed price is for this particular sword stand. Hand crafted of exotic wood, this stand displays a heavy Japanese influence with a frame highly suggestive of Shinto shrine arches and a hinomaru center. This stand was crafted to hold three swords and has a rear fixture for wall mount as well as a folding easel stand for table top display. It stands about 27.5 inches high when tilted on the easel stand...

We are proud to offer this much sought reference book. W.M. Hawley's 1981 Japanese Swordsmiths Revised is a classic in the industry and an extremely important source of information on tens of thousands of samurai sword makers. Condition is superb with smooth binding and crisp, clean and undamaged pages. There is one depression on the upper spine that is exaggerated in the photo below. I find no other condition issues.

Lovely bracelet style watch band just smells like the Southwest. Very tasteful example of Native American sterling and turquoise workmanship. The watch slot is 1.5 inches wide at the base tapering to 1 inch at the top so presumably a watch face between those measurements should fit fine. The slot wings are also slightly rounded so it looks like the shape of the watch face shouldn't matter. The design also appears to be unisex. The inside width is 2.5 inches and could be flexed outward a bit more...

Small Samurai tanto in the style of an armor piercing blade. Lovely lacquer mounts as shown in photographs. Scabbard fittings appear to be silver. Tang is unsigned. Blade shows darkening but is smooth with no rust, pitting or nicks. Attractive piece priced fairly.

Interesting menpo. Below is an old ring mail skirt laced on. It looks like this is the correct configuration and intended use but the skirt has been laced on with a modern shoelace. Apparently a quick repair by previous owner, this is reflected in the price. Overall reasonably solid condition. The gold wire border on the skirt is frayed from age and there menpo itself has a crack on one side (Please see photos attached)...

Nicely done bone inlay tray. I would think that this is from southeast Asia. Good sized example at 47x33cm. There is a fair amount of surface wear due to age as well as missing inlay here and there. I do not repair items but I would think that the missing inlay could be filled in and of course there are always ways to fix surface wear. The wood is a mystery to me being quite dark and having a grain that looks almost like hairs. Pretty work on this piece and priced quite fairly.

Fine example of an antique, circa 1900 Kris knife/dagger. Very impressive workmanship in this attractive knife; See photos for details. I find one chip in the handle and some small denting to the tip end of the scabbard. Both are minor problems and more then reflected in the price.

While these are lovely arrows I can not accurately date them so please consider them superb display items but not antiques. That being said, they are terrifically made. The shafts are perfectly straight. The feathers and points are both wrapped on with what looks like real sinew. The points are finely knapped and terrific examples. One has a tiny flake off of the tip which is only noticable on very close inspection (See last photo). This is really a neat pair.

Very impressive Japanese woodblock print by Yoshitora. Appears to be a gathering of daimyo. There is one seated that seems to be the authority figure but the rest are also all quite imposing, and some even on horseback that look to have just arrived. Most figures have blocks with their names. In the upper background are a myriad of banners showing many mon. This has been professionally framed. What is visible shows no damage and deep, strong coloring. I can not speak for the condition under the ...

This offering is a finely made basket, I believe it is Papago. It has a unique star shaped rim woven into place at five points. No noticable damage, but does show its age. Maximum width including the rim is just under 15cm, not including the rim it is 12cm. A basket with character.
