Foreword

The Christmas Special 2017 We are pleased to offer for sale a selection of arts and crafts from Southeast Asia, especially from Burma. We are showing a variety of interesting antique bronze objects, such as remarkable rain drums from southern China via Laos and Burma to Indonesia, a Burmese Gong as well as a small collection of bronze bells from Burma. Included in the catalogue are five Buddha statues from the Shan States, Arakan and Thailand, made of bronze, but also a wooden one. Our catalogue also features silver jewellery from the hill tribes of the Golden Triangle, extensively described and wellillustrated in Paul and Elaine Lewis’ publication “Peoples of the Golden Triangle”. Also from our silver collection we offer a few lime boxes from Burma and Thailand as well as a rare Thabeik silver bowl from Tawoy (southern Burma). For the first time we offer a fine selection of Burmese lacquerware. Again, the second part of the catalogue is reserved for the “Opium weights”. We offer a few sets and groups of standard weights, mostly in good worn condition with smooth surface and rich patina. A few special weights among them, such as unusual Hintha weights from Arakan, rare marble weights from Mandalay or Myanmar Post Office bronze weights from the early 20th century. For a limited time only (until 31 Jan 2018), we offer here some of the art works and Burmese weights with a special Christmas discount. Please enjoy our catalogue no. 22, “The Christmas Special 2017”. Our very best wishes for a peaceful Advent season, Merry Christmas and a successful, prosperous and healthy 2018 go along with sincere thanks to our friends, collectors and clients for their continuing confidence and support.

A bronze rain drum from Laos or Yunnan in good condition with 3 small cracks of the bottom edge and one partial damage of the edge of the tympanum (with wooden stand).

Karen Frog drum “KYEE ZEE�, (Heger Type III), Burma, circa 19th century

A wonderful example of the old Karen rain drums with one-frog tympanum, finely cast in bronze. The tympanum with four single frogs, concentric bands with fish and bird ornaments as well as the body with further decorative bands. Opitz describes that the Karen used the drums, but they were made from the Shan and Intha of eastern Burma. Kyee-Zee drums were also used in northwestern Laos by Lamet, Kammu and Khmu people, purchased from the Karen. A remarkable piece of Burmese and Karen history.

Offering vessel with Hintha bird on the top, Hsun ok, Mandalay, Burma, late 19th century

Both the shape and the embellishment of this vessel represent the Mandalay style of decorating lacquer vessels and objects, which are typically elaborated with gilded relief work made of thayo, and inlays of coloured glass. Although the majority of the decoration is of floral and abstract design, prancing animals (probably mythical lions) made of thayo lacquer putty can be seen chasing throu the scrollwork in the bands that run around the belly of the vessel on both sides of the opening. [1] It’s a great example of a Hsun ok in rare good condition with original gilding. Museum quality! condition:

121 2 and 1 tical weights bear a 9-rayed star under the base. The bottom of the base of the 1 viss weight has been ground and polished. Possibly to reduce the weight or simply to flatten the base for a better stand. The 4 bigger weights have a beautiful 2-knobbed handle decoration. Especially the joint between handle and body of the 50 tical weight is a unique feature (detail inside front cover). As usual for C2B, a 4 instead of a 5 tical weight completes the set.

(2) Abweichende Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen des Kunden werden zurückgewiesen. §2 Zustandekommen des Vertrages (1) Die Präsentation der Waren in der OnlineGalerie stellt kein bindendes Angebot des Anbieters auf Abschluss eines Kaufvertrages dar. Der Kunde wird hierdurch lediglich aufgefordert, durch eine Bestellung ein Angebot abzugeben. (2) Durch das Absenden der Bestellung per Email gibt der Kunde ein verbindliches Angebot gerichtet auf den Abschluss eines Kaufvertrages über die durch ihn in der Email genannten Waren ab. Mit dem Absenden der Bestellung erkennt der Kunde auch diese Geschäftsbedingungen als für das Rechtsverhältnis mit dem Anbieter allein maßgeblich an. (3) Der Anbieter bestätigt den Eingang der Bestellung des Kunden durch Versendung einer Bestätigungs-E-Mail. Diese Bestellbestätigung stellt noch nicht die Annahme des Vertragsangebotes durch den Anbieter dar. Sie dient lediglich der Information des Kunden, dass die Bestellung beim Anbieter eingegangen ist. Die Erklärung der Annahme des Vertragsangebotes erfolgt durch die Auslieferung der Ware oder eine ausdrückliche Annahmeerklärung. §3 Leistungsbeschreibung (1) Die Beschaffenheiten der angebotenen Gegenstände werden im Einzelnen durch die Beschreibung auf der Website bzw. in einem per Download oder Email zur Verfügung gestellten Katalog im pdf-Format links oder rechts neben, unter oder über der Abbildung verbindlich und abschließend dargestellt. Sonstige öffentliche Äußerungen des Anbieters, dessen Gehilfen oder Dritter enthalten keine ergänzende oder ändernde Leistungsbeschreibung. (2) Den Parteien ist bewusst, dass es bei der Übertragung und Anzeige der Bilddateien möglicherweise zu Abweichungen zwischen dem Original und der Darstellung auf dem Monitor z.B. hinsichtlich der Farbtöne kommen kann. Eine farbgetreue Wiedergabe der zugrunde liegenden Originale ist nicht geschuldet. Geringfügige Abweichungen zwischen der Darstellung des Bildes auf den Monitor und dem Original sind vertragsgemäß.

jedoch die in der Produktbeschreibung enthaltenen Eigenschaften (z.B. Material, Alter, Herkunft) auf der Website bzw. im Katalog zum Zeitpunkt der Bestellung. Preise Alle Preise verstehen sich in Euro. Maßgeblich sind ausschließlich die auf Anfrage dem Kunden per Email mitgeteilten Preise. Die in der Internetpräsentation bzw. im pdf-Katalog im Übrigen enthaltenen Angaben, insbesondere Preise, enthalten kein verbindliches Angebot und sind freibleibend. Irrtümer auf voran geschalteten Website oder abweichende Preisangaben auf Websites Dritter haben keine Verbindlichkeit im Verhältnis der Vertragsparteien. Alle angegebenen Preise verstehen sich in Euro zzgl. der jeweils geltenden gesetzlichen Mehrwertsteuer. Diese wird in der Rechnung separat ausgewiesen. Die Kosten für Lieferung und Verpackung trägt der Kunde. Die Art der Lieferung wählt der Kunde. Äußert sich der Kunde nicht zur Art der Lieferung, wählt der Anbieter die für ihn günstigste Versandvariante. Bei Lieferungen in Länder außerhalb der Europäischen Union können zusätzliche Kosten für anfallende weitere Steuern und Zölle entstehen, auf die der Anbieter keinen Einfluss hat. Diese Kosten werden in vollem Umfang vom Kunden getragen. Zahlung Der Kunde wählt bei Abgabe seiner Bestellung unter mehreren durch den Anbieter vorgegebenen Zahlungsweisen die gewünschte aus. Zahlungen gelten ungeachtet der gewählten Zahlungsweise erst dann als geleistet, wenn der Anbieter uneingeschränkt über den Betrag verfügen kann. Der Kaufpreis ist sofort ohne Abzug fällig. Der Kunde ist vorleistungspflichtig. Der Kunde kommt ohne weitere Erklärung seitens des Anbieters 14 Tage nach Lieferung der Ware in Verzug, soweit er nicht bezahlt hat.

über dem Anbieter gilt die Regelung in § 6 dieser AGB. Die Verjährungsfrist für Gewährleistungsansprüche des Kunden beträgt bei Verbrauchern bei neu hergestellten Sachen 2 Jahre, bei gebrauchten Sachen 1 Jahr. Gegenüber Unternehmern beträgt die Verjährungsfrist bei neu hergestellten Sachen und bei gebrauchten Sachen 1 Jahr. Die vorstehende Verkürzung der Verjährungsfristen gilt nicht für Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden aufgrund einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit sowie für Schadensersatzansprüche aufgrund einer Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist, z.B. hat der Anbieter dem Kunden die Sache frei von Sach- und Rechtsmängeln zu übergeben und das Eigentum an ihr zu verschaffen. Die vorstehende Verkürzung der Verjährungsfristen gilt ebenfalls nicht für Schadensersatzansprüche, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung des Anbieters, seiner gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Gegenüber Unternehmern ebenfalls ausgenommen von der Verkürzung der Verjährungsfristen ist der Rückgriffsanspruch nach § 478 BGB. Eine Garantie wird von dem Anbieter nicht erklärt. Haftungsausschluss Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden sind ausgeschlossen, soweit nachfolgend nichts anderes bestimmt ist. Der vorstehende Haftungsausschluss gilt auch zugunsten der gesetzlichen Vertreter und Erfüllungsgehilfen des Anbieters, sofern der Kunde Ansprüche gegen diese geltend macht. Von dem unter Ziffer 1 bestimmten Haftungsausschluss ausgenommen sind Schadensersatzansprüche aufgrund einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit und Schadensersatzansprüche aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist, z.B. hat der Anbieter dem Kunden die Sache frei von Sach- und Rechtsmängeln zu übergeben und das Eigentum an ihr zu verschaffen. Von dem Haftungsausschluss ebenfalls ausgenommen ist die Haftung für Schäden, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung des Anbieters, seiner gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Vorschriften des Produkthaftungsgesetzes (ProdHaftG) bleiben unberührt. Abtretungs- und Verpfändungsverbot Die Abtretung oder Verpfändung von dem Kunden gegenüber dem Anbieter zu-

stehenden Ansprüchen oder Rechten ist ohne Zustimmung des Anbieters ausgeschlossen, sofern der Kunde nicht ein berechtigtes Interesse an der Abtretung oder Verpfändung nachweist. § 12 Aufrechnung Ein Aufrechnungsrecht des Kunden besteht nur, wenn seine zur Aufrechnung gestellte Forderung rechtskräftig festgestellt wurde oder unbestritten ist. § 13 Rechtswahl & Gerichtsstand (1) Auf die vertraglichen Beziehungen zwischen dem Anbieter und dem Kunden findet das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland Anwendung. Von dieser Rechtswahl ausgenommen sind die zwingenden Verbraucherschutzvorschriften des Landes, in dem der Kunde seinen gewöhnlichen Aufenthalt hat. Die Anwendung des UN-Kaufrechts ist ausgeschlossen. (2) Gerichtsstand für alle Streitigkeiten aus dem Vertragsverhältnis zwischen dem Kunden und dem Anbieter ist der Sitz des Anbieters, sofern es sich bei dem Kunden um einen Kaufmann, eine juristische Person des öffentlichen Rechts oder ein öffentlich-rechtliches Sondervermögen handelt. § 14 Salvatorische Klausel Sollte eine Bestimmung dieser Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen unwirksam sein, wird davon die Wirksamkeit der übrigen Bestimmungen nicht berührt.
