Phillip's Longport pottery Charger New England 1822-40
Genuine Phillip's Longport mark, charger (plate), early 19th century, New England. Size: 15.5 x 20.75 inches = 39 cm x 52 cm; Weight: 10 lb. = 4.5 kg; Condition: excellent, no chips, no cracks. Some history: The pottery was founded by two brothers, Edward and George Phillips, in 1822. Their father was a merchant in Newcastle under Lyme, and no one in the family seems to have had a pottery background. Edward, however, married Benedicta Wedgwood, who had become a ward of Josiah Wedgwood after the death of her father, Thomas, of the Overhouse Works. The brothers leased the New Bridge pottery in Longport, also known as the Bottom Bridge Works, from Joseph Brindley. The pottery had an excellent location on the Trent and Mersey Canal and had been vacant since 1817, when the previous tenants, Lindop and Taylor, went out of business. The Rogers and Davenport firms, known for extensive North American trade, were neighbors. References: Condition Excellent/Very Fine, normal aging of the porcelain, some scratches at the back (see the photos) no chips, no cracks, Low Estimate: 3000; High Estimate: 6000; Original: Yes; Circa: 1825; Eternity Gallery
#3 Jiroft - cradle of civilization
Jiroft culture, 2500 BC-2200 BC, Genuine antique carved chlorite stone vase #3, 272 g Archaeological found. Height: 115 mm = 11.5 cm = 4.5 inches; Base diameter: 46 mm - 47 = 4.5 cm; Weight: 272 g = 9.6 oz. Condition: great for the age of 4300 years, 4 insignificant chips at the top rim and 2 small chips at the bottom; Mohs hardness: 2-3; The typical general formula is: (Mg,Fe)3(Si,Al)4O10(OH)2·(Mg,Fe)3(OH)6. This formula emphasizes the structure of the group. Provenance: private collection in Near East ; The "Jiroft culture" is a postulated early Bronze Age (late 3rd millennium BC) archaeological culture, located in the territory of present-day Balochistan and Kerman Provinces of Iran. The hypothesis is based on a collection of artifacts that were confiscated in Iran and accepted by many to have derived from the Jiroft area in south central Iran, reported by online Iranian news services, beginning in 2001. The proposed type site is Konar Sandal, near Jiroft in the Halil River area. Other significant sites associated with the culture include; Shahr-e Sukhteh (Burnt City), Tepe Bampur, Espiedej, Shahdad, Tal-i-Iblis, and Tepe Yahya. The proposition of grouping these sites as an "independent Bronze Age civilization with its own architecture and language", intermediate between Elam to the west and the Indus Valley Civilization to the east, is due to Yusef Majidzadeh, head of the archaeological excavation team in Jiroft. He speculates they may be the remains of the lost Aratta Kingdom, but his conclusions have met with skepticism from some reviewers. Other conjectures (e.g. Daniel T. Potts, Piotr Steinkeller) have connected the Konar Sandal with the obscure city-state of Marhashi, that apparently lay to the east of Elam proper. Buried Beneath the Sand, The Ziggurat of Jiroft May be Largest and Oldest of its Kind in the World The Ziggurat of Jiroft, known also as the Konar Sandal Ziggurat, is an ancient monument located in Jiroft in the southern Iranian province of Kerman, a place that some say is Iran?s cradle of civilization. This ziggurat was discovered in 2002, and it has been reported that it is the second ziggurat to be found in Iran, the first being the Chogha Zanbil Ziggurat. According to some sources, the Ziggurat of Jiroft is the largest and oldest structure of its kind in the world. Eternity Gallery

Museum Quality Jade Clothing Hook of Han Period
Museum Quality Jade Clothing Hook of Han Period Measurements: Length: 4 ½ inches = 11.2 cm; Width: 3/8 inches = 0.9 cm; Thickness: ¾ inches = 1.9 cm; Weight = 1 oz. = 28 g Museum Quality Green Jade Clip and Button for Noble’s Clothing in Han or Late Zhou Period. Classical Dragon Head with Grain Motifs of prosperity of the period. Highly Collectible from Seasoned Estate Collection. Review of the literature and Discussion: The belt hook was initially a dress accessory, but eventually became a collector item. A few jade hooks have been found at a Liangzhou site. Belt hook was at its most widespread during the Eastern Zhou period (770-256 BC). Traditionally, the Chinese people tied knots to fasten their clothes. Belts were used tighten loose robes, mainly to facilitate movements, especially in outdoor activities. The stud on the back of the hook would have been pushed through a slit on one end of the belt, while the other end would be equipped with a ring could be inserted into the hook. In Northern Song era, scholars avidly collected ancient jade or bronze belt hooks. By 17th century, belt hooks were put to a number of novel uses: elegant picture hooks on the wall or brush rests on scholar’s desks. Qing dynasty robes for men were not as loose as those of the preceding Ming dynasty, and there is a very little pictorial evidence to show that belt hooks were worn as a clothing accessory. Although it was a considerable amount of jade hooks made in 18th and 19th century, they were made only to satisfy collecting craze of that era. Since the hook was not intended to be worn, the gap between the dragon's head and the chi is very small. Another characteristic of Qing workmanship is that the chi is raised above the body of the hook to a level almost parallel with the dragon's head. Conclusion 1) The hook in our auction is really worn and made to wear a clothing as a practical accessories; 2) According to style and aging condition of the jade there is a high probability that the hook in this auction was made in Han Dynasty References: Chinese Jades, by Ming Wilson, 2004, p. 29-33 Eternity Gallery
