Despite the beautiful summer weather in Haarlem I spent much of my time indoors the last weeks photographing, researching and describing 9 new items.

New items August



It was a pleasure though. These pieces span centuries of history and a geographic area from Sri Lanka to Korea and I thoroughly enjoyed owning them for a while.

They include:
A rare early tube quiver, Tibet or Mongolia
An early bow case, Tibet or Mongolia
A spreading quiver, Tibet or Mongolia
A pair of Vietnamese swords
A stray Korean sword guard
A Sumatran keris panjang
A Sinhalese kasthāné
A Sinhalese pihiya kättha
A Sinhalese ul pihiya

Go see them in full in the items section.
