I have compiled a wealth of unique treasures, antiques and artworks from Asia with a fantastic and mysterious history from travels, China, Japan, Bali, Tibet, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, Taiwan, Philippines, Laos and Vietnam.
My fascination with Asia inspired me to move here from England and become an avid collector/buyer of Asian oriental antique statues, carvings, puppets, bronzes and unique objects, other items have been from years of collecting and accumulating from estates, private collections and auctions.
ANTIQUE 19th c TEAK WOOD LAOS RED GOLD TEMPLE SHRINE SITTING BUDDHA
Fresh to the market from a private collection. I have just been introduced to a Laotian living here in Thailand with a very nice private collection and has offered me some pieces to sell on, he is 72 years old and has been collecting for many years and I would say has one of the finest collection from Laos I have seen. All or most of his pieces are in pristine condition for their age and have been very well looked after. I am learning towards the Laos shape Buddha's over the Burmese and Thai due to there long flat facial features.
Sorry about the rubbish quality of my photo's.
Due to the size, shape and being slightly fragile, some pieces will have to be specially wrapped, boxed and insured for loss only which shows in the shipping cost, I do not intend to take any chances with these pieces, better safe than sorry, it would be heart breaking to think it arrived broken and deserves looking after.
There are a lot of retired American, English, Germans etc living here in Thailand enjoying their last days in hotter tropical climes. With being out and about every day looking for items to buy I meet many foreigners living in strange out of the way places, I also do a lot of advertising in local papers etc saying I will buy any collections, Antiques and so on, things are starting to pick up, I am getting a few Thai ladies calling saying their husbands have passed away and have items that they do not know what to do with, there is some great stuff turning up.
