Antiques.

I went to an antiques auction yesterday and found a few very interesting items. The first one is a mahjong set made of bone and bamboo. The craft level is amazing. It came up on the block and no one bid on it so I went to the guy after and bought it after taking a closer look at it.  It dates from the 1900 – 1920 period.

The second piece is a small box. I am unsure of the metal but it is probably a mix of silver and a few other metals. I really like the level of detail and the size. I sold it today to a buyer from China.

The last piece is an Edo period piece of blown glass. It was used as a holder of medicine for eye washes. The color is rare, yellow being unusual in this period of glass.
