Our catalogue > Burmese Antiques

The antique arts of Burma (now known as Myanmar) are among Asia’s most under-appreciated art works. Lacquer makers, wood carvers and other artisans produced extraordinary items, and the skill of the country’s silversmiths quite possibly surpassed those operating in say, England.

All items are available for sale right now.
