Fine old Shan Burmese lacquer box, circa early 20th century with one tray and depicting monkeys playing in foliate background. This piece is a real classic beauty (IMHO). There are a couple of repairs at the edge of the rim noted in enlargements as well as craclature on the surface and nicks around the foot. H: 19.2cm/7.6in and D: 22cm/8in. Please note I put a grain of rice in the last enlargement to highlight the finely detailed work.

Very rare Burmese/Shan small betel box, over 100 years old with “ku-nan kan byat” pattern and original inner tray. Genuine antique Burmese lacquer is almost impossible to find these days; I picked this up in a small shop Luang Prabang, Laos in 1998. H: 8.7cm/3.4in and W: 10.2cm/4in. There are old repairs on this as well as a pleasing cracalature typical of antique Burmese lacquer. A fine acquisition for the knowledgable collector.

Nice old antique black lacquered bamboo and wood box from Cambodia circa early 20th century. This part of a collection I acquired almost 20 years ago. Khmer lacquer is quite rare, not many crafts survived the Khmer Rouge era, and is a lost art. Some wear as to be expected but no major damage. D: 5cm/7.8in

Exceptionally rare lacquer box from the Kachin ethnic group, Myanmar- a very old piece circa 100 years old, and one of only three I have ever seen. I acquired this piece about 15 years ago in Pagan. Nothing is documented (that I can find) on Kachin lacquer making although Sylvia Fraser-Lu, probably one of the world’s most well known Western expert on Burmese lacquer, mention’s that the best raw lacquer comes from the Kachin State...

Rare complete lacquer tobacco box with trays from the Karen hilltribe ethnic group Northern Thailand. Next to nothing has written about this craft amongst the Karen people although they are known for their water tight baskets using lacquer to seal the weave. H: 9.5cm/3.8in and D: 8.6cm/3.3in.

Genuine antique Shan lacquer box circa late 19thCE. Most Burmese lacquer being offered on the internet purported to be antique are vintage at best and new at worst. I acquired this in Yunnan, China along the Burmese border but of Shan (nationality in China). Although there is some damage the craftsmanship is exquisite which is why I put a grain of sand in a couple of the images to put the work into perspective...

Fine old Cambodian lacquered woven bamboo betel box. No damage or restoration other than natural wear, as to be expected. Any lacquer coming from Southeast Asia with no signs of use is a strong indicator that its new. Circa 60 to 90 years old. D: 21.5cm/8.5in and H: 9cm/3.5in

Nice old Cambodian woven bamboo lacquered scroll box with simple a mother of pearl inlay design, circa late 19th to early 20th CE. This is an unusually large piece in good original condition; the body is still pliable, the top is a bit scuffed on the lid- to be expected from an old item. H: 42cm/16.5in and D: 13cm/5.1.
