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.

Very nice set of three Inuit ivory figural carvings. Older pieces with some of the dark lines that ivory grain often shows over the years. These were probably mounted on something at one time as there are holes in the fellows' feet. The tallest is 5.5cm. Nice little grouping.

Nice ivory netsuke depicting a turtle relaxing on a lily pad. The bottom shows the veins of the pad and the stem leaning to the side. Not a national treasure but still a nice little carving.

Fine ivory perfume bottle. Not as elaborate as some but an appealing example nonetheless. While it does have some age I would not only, consider it antique. Shipment to US only, minus California

Very nice Eskimo carved billiken. I believe this is walrus ivory. The label is a bit rumpled and difficult to photograph but it reads "Genuine Ivory, Eskimo Made" and the center shows a smiling Eskimo fellow. 6.5cm tall. Ships only to US minus California.

Cute little cat netsuke. At about 3.2cm high this is not a large example but it is tastefully carved and has a nice ivory grain throughout. Signed Mitsu Yuki.

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...

Older ivory Chinese chess set. Despite being well carved, it looks like the king and "queen" are actually bone and from something else. The other 30 pieces are all ivory and show a nice grain on flat surfaces. There are a few nicks on some of the red pieces that could be easily touched up with a bit of paint. Some other small condition problems such as the decapitated knight (Could be glued back)...

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.
