Guest Book
 Free with any purchase from our Southeast Asia section over $300  
An excellent and absolutely essential pictorial reference book for anybody interested in Burmese wares. From lacquerware to carved statuary to offering vessels of all kinds, this book has over 180 excellent full color photos of all things Burmese. In our candid opinion, it's not enough of a reason to purchase an antique merely for the sake of a free book, but any client already seriously contemplating a purchase can enjoy this as a free extra.

Many collectors, especially beginners, do not make enough effort to acquire good reference books, and are tempted to spend on pieces before they have really learned enough to purchase responsibly and protect themselves. But there is really no better way to educate one's eye than studying the pieces of established collections in published books. However you acquire them, we encourage collectors to amass a good reference library which over time, is essential to building a solid collection and avoiding costly mistakes.
