Qilin Mythical Creature Jade Stamp. Extra fine and extremely rare example of an early Chinese Jade stamp with a classic Qilin, or horned ridged backed scaled unicorn sitting atop. This example has a distinct segmented tapering horn that folds back from its forehead. Made of well patinated’Chicken Bone’ Jade. The carving on the bottom of the stamp is a mystery. The Qilin is known as a good omen thought to occasion prosperity or serenity. In legend, the Qilin first appeared in the 5th Century B. It is said that Emperor Wu of Han captured one in 122 B. From the weathered and aged surface appearance we believe this to be an example from the period. There are age cracks in the base that are completely stable and show no signs of repair. Some old red ink is embedded in the cracks and elsewhere on the stamp. It has been inspected by a geologist employing 100X magnification and it was determined that the stamp is in a condition completely consistent with and resultant of known natural geologic weathering and aging principles. Well patinated light gray/brown’Chicken Bone’ Jade. 3cm Tall x 2.8cm Square. __________________________________________________ Jackson’s On Main sells high quality art and antiquities at excellent prices from both our extensive collection and from the private collections of our clients and various estates.

Is fitted into a vertical slot in the stand “A”, the part received in the said slot having rounded protuberances on each side to bear against the sides of the slot to permit the free vibration of the lever, as well as a free upward and downward movement. The lever is made with a yoke “H” for the reception of the cam “C” and fitted with a set screw “T” to regulate the feed, as in many other New England type sewing-machines. The downward pressure upon lever is produced by a spring, to permit it to have an independent upward and downward movement. Between the spring and the cam “d” there is arrangement for a pin and a hole for pin to pass freely through. While the needle is in the fabric and the lever is returning with the foot “L” prior to a new feed-movement, the cam raises the leaf removing the pressure of the spring from the lever and foot, allowing foot to slide freely over the cloth. These small, hand-turned sewing machines were manufactured by six companies. In The Carter Bays’ Encyclopedia of Early American & Antique sewing machines (III) where the same machine is being featured on page #161 fig # 2-194 with the comments that two-or three digit number painted underneath (also see fig 2-226).

The lamp features an early design & color, and the 12 glass insert is free of chips, cracks, or scratches. The vase/lamp base is unsigned, but unmistakenly made by Quezal. This is the only example of a lamp I have seen in green, although this décor often shows up in signed vases. As you can see, the lamp is not wired. All the other parts are present, but improving the mounts from the current ones would likely help the lamp. I believe this lamp was made earlier than most other lamps, before they started to use their standard mounts. The glass portion measure 12.25″ tall, and overall the lamp is 20″ from base to the top of the socket. Again, the vase is in pristine condition. This quote is for the Continental U.

Extremely Rare Late 17th Early 18th Century Dutch Netherlands Marine Compass!!!! I say amaZingly because it is one of the most advanced designs of compasses for its time that I have come across! The needle is half white steel and half blackened steel, the white portion points North perhaps since Europeans are generally speaking white at that time, while the South is blackened since the south is primarily inhabited by darker folks, regardless the two different colors make it much easier and thus faster to differentiate between North and South, and the shape of the needle makes it much easier to follow even by someone with poor eye sight, extremely intelligent. Most likely created for the Dutch East India or Dutch West India Company, which could not function with-out such devices, the GPS of its time. It is the only compass I have eVer seen with a Z for south (Zuiden), which clearly and definitively indicate the compass is Dutch. The measurements of the wooden case are approximately 10.2 cm x 9.35 cm x 3.55 cm (4″ x 3 10.8/16″ x 1 6.5/16). The brass ring surrounding the compass is approximately 8.75 cm (3 7/16) in diameter. On the brass portion, the decorations, lines, and arabic numerals were all hand engraved by one of the worlds unknown but best compass makers I have eVer encountered. I have seen a Dutch? Compass, I inserted a question mark because the South was an S and not a Z, and of what I deem of much lesser quality fetch a sum of approximately 55 thousand USDs! So price-wise this beauty is a gift! The wooden case box is partially cracked on both sides, the crystal glass has some scratche s as can be observed on the upper right quadrant of the second image and the upper left quadrant of the 5th image , and some points of oxidation (darker colored areas), but remains a fully functional and beautiful compass worthy of any museum! A great addition to any museum quality marine or scientific collection! Definitely a gift for any high level intellectual mind! Please feel free to check out my other Museum Quality Collection! For the year of our Lord 2015 I wish you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

This item is in the category “Antiques\Maritime\Maritime Compasses”. The seller is “bluefirebreather” and is located in San Bernardino, California. This item can be shipped worldwide.
