 My gifts to Fort San Domingo from the Giles Family Collection 

This is a small ivory study of two Mandarin Ducks (Guangxu 1875, height 5.5 cm).  It is my favourite of all the works of art that my parents brought back from China.  To me, it represents faithful love, and it is with faithful love that I give it to Tamsui.
A carved fruitwood box of a finger-like lotus root form (Guangxu 1875, length 10 cm.).   It has travelled around the world many times and has unfortunately sustained some breaks.  But it is still a thing of beauty.
