Happy Friday and weekend to you. I love these pieces from the upcoming Leslie Hindman auction of fine furniture and decorative arts. The Japanese tsuba are new to me, and I like them for the metal, the folk art, the geometry, and the femininity (which seems anomalous in a sword guard). I also love the Chinese tomb figure. To me she's saying, "Just try to mess with me." And the pitcher and vase are simply sweet to me.
