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.

 SHAN STATE PAPER MACHE TEMPLE SHRINE SITTING BUDDHA WITH INLAID GLASS

 This week I am listing some of the best wood and Paper Mache Buddha's and heads available on the market here in the North of Thailand, very old rare pieces fresh to the market from a private collection and a dealer friend, there are not many left here that I have not listed. This pair has hand cut glass inlaid on the gown and base.

Papier-mâché literally means chewed paper, and it historically has involved various complicated techniques and materials. Paper in pulp, strips, or sheet form was held together with binders such as hide glue or natural resins. Fillers were added to the paper and glue mix to give a smoother surface or add strength. Papier-mâché is lightweight, hard, and strong, and some types could be worked like wood. Pieces were finished using lacquer, inlay, paint, or varnish.
 
The earliest known examples of papier-mâché are pot lids and helmets from China's Han Dynasty (B.C. 202-220 A.D.) and a falcon's coffin from Persia. Both purely decorative items such as carnival masks and Halloween decorations and functional objects such as tables, chairs, trays, and eyeglass cases were produced.

Shan State is a state of Burma (Myanmar). Shan State borders China to the north, Laos to the east, and Thailand to the south, and five administrative divisions of Burma in the west. Largest of the 14 administrative divisions by land area, Shan State covers 155,800 km², almost a quarter of the total area of Burma. The state gets its name from the Shan people, one of several ethnic groups that inhabit the area. Shan State is largely rural, with only three cities of significant size: Lashio, Kengtung, and the capital, Taunggyi

Shan State, with many ethnic groups, is home to several armed ethnic armies. While the military government has signed ceasefire agreements with most groups, vast areas of the state, especially those east of Thanlwin river, remain outside the central government's control, and in recent years have come under heavy ethnic-Chinese economic and political influence, whereas other areas are under the control of military groups such as the Shan State Army.

Probably the biggest collection of vintage Buddha's on ebay.

PLEASE NOTE

America has had sanctions against Burma for 9 years because of the way the government and military Junta treat there own people, especially the working class and the poor, with the visit of Obama things may possibly change in the near future, ebay also backs these sanctions and when it suits them throw many items off of ebay with the name Burma, Burmese or Myanmar in the title, 100% of the items I sell are made by the working class and poor, most of whom now live in Thailand, this is how they survive so not only are they suffering at the hands of their own government they are also being made to suffer by America and ebay, these sanctions are not affecting the government or the Junta they are affecting the poor which defeats the object of the sanctions.

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.

I LIST NEW ITEMS EVERY WEEK, CHECK OUT MY WEIRD AND WONDERFUL ITEMS UP FOR AUCTION.

PAYPAL ONLY

READ THIS BEFORE YOU BID:

The Thai postal service charges $30.00 a kilo by air, land sea is a lot cheaper but takes longer. I cannot be held responsible for your countries import taxes or any other duties that have to be paid or control what Thai post charges for shipping.

Shipping from Thailand can take between 10 to 28 days depending on the postal service and area so please be patient.

Thai post only insures for loss and not damage.

I try my best to bring you unique and sometimes very rare items, I travel to many out of the way places where there are no hotels, its normally my bike, sleeping bag, a tree and lots of mosquito's, to bring you these pieces. I can sell you an item, wrap it as carefully as I can and then ship it to you. I cannot control what Thai post charges for shipping or tell you the exact time it takes to arrive to you, and can only give you a rough idea from past dealings, I have no control what so ever over any postal service's or U.S. customs. I use bubble wrap and peanuts to cushion each item from possible mishandling during shipping. If for any reason, the item is broken, please email within 24 hours along with pictures of the broken item, original box inside and outside.

I try to take good photo's with different angles, I also put all the information I know about the piece on the page including Height, Width and Weight, I also state clearly at the bottom of the page what it will cost me to ship it to you, I do not charge for the box and wrapping which is also expensive here as it has to be imported. Don't be leaving me a 2 or 3 star rating about shipping or anything else, everything you need to know is here on the page, if you disagree with these conditions go elsewhere. There are many new buyers now on ebay taking advantage of good honest sellers leaving negative feedback and low DSR's for silly reasons.

 US & CANADA...Airmail 10 -28 Days  $35.00

   EUROPE...Airmail 10 -20 Days  £20.00

I can ship land sea for half the price with tracking number but up to 8 weeks plus delivery.

Thank you for looking.
