A Sunburst Carved Rosewood Indian Colonial Secretary, c.1840
This secretary is crafted from rich, dense rosewood exhibiting the fluted sunburst motif and gadrooned edging. The carving in the upper case is of the finest quality. Note the very deep and detailed vine motif surrounding the glazed openings, which are banded in brass, and the cornice moulding, which is a standout and fully developed. When closed, this secretary is quite striking with all the sunburst panels which retain all of the original brass. The interior writing surface also retains its original velvet which can be changed if so desired. This piece is in pristine condition with no repairs or alterations. It even retains its original wavy glass. A special mention should be made of the hidden drawers, two of which are hidden behind panels flanking the central prospect door. A secret sliding panel unlocks the drawers, which can be pulled out after the central slide drawer is removed. As an aside, this secretary relates to the grouping of Eastern Colonial Furniture on exhibit at the Boston MFA in Made in the Americas: The New World Discovers Asia. We feel these pieces, over time, will greatly appreciate in value, as things of Eastern Origin become of greater importance in the developing countries, China notwithstanding. Historically, these pieces were created in the old port cities along the pacific rim, down through India. Height: 77 1/4 in. Width: 43 1/4 in. Depth: 18 in.

House model (Dutta-10225)
Model House in terracotta from the Giao-Chi period, 1st – 3rd century AD. Length : 31cm, Height : 20cm This object was uncovered in the digs at Thanh Hao, north Vietnam. Very rare house made up of 5 independent elements, consisting of a base section, a first-floor living section, another for the second floor, the porch roof, and the roof. Inside the main court one can make out a small sculpture of a dog. Knowing that the main gate was most likely facing east towards the rising sun, the main living quarters, situated on the first floor, are facing south. The lower quarters are given over to farming activities and shelter for the animals. This type of model house, very few of which have reached us, is rendered even rarer by the fact that it is not only complete but also intact. On account of the fact that the buildings were made from wood and vegetable matter, these ceramics are the only way we have of knowing the nature of the architecture of that period in Vietnamese history. To our knowledge, no object of this type has been on the market in the past fifty years. Literature: Manual of archaeology, Vietnam. The ceramics of Southeast Asia by Roxanna Brown.
