Foreword

Christmas Special 2018 - Petites Surprises What a surprise! There were not too many weights available on the German art market this year. But one piece seemed to be of special interest. Finally the 20 tical lion we found was an exciting masculine beast. When we came across a famous market “somewhere” in Southeast Asia, a small collection of earliest lion weights of particular rarity and high quality luckily just appeared on that day. Now offered for sale here in the catalogue. Later we got two unique Arakan weights (a lion and a bird) from different collections. Another German collector was interested to sell a part of his collection. So we were able to acquire a few more beautiful pieces. From a well-known London collection we purchased old silver works of ethnic groups of the Golden Triangle, which can be rarely found today in this quality and purity of silver, collected in the 70s and 80s of the 20th century, well documented in Paul and Elaine Lewis’ book. So, finally we offer some exceptional objects of Asian arts and crafts, which - at least after closer examination - seem to be real surprises, even quite small in size. For a limited time only (until 31 Jan 2019), we offer here a few art works and Burmese weights with a special Happy New Year’s discount. If you are looking for a weight, which we not offer here in our current catalogue, please ask by email. We have a few more in stock. So probably your weight is already waiting here. Please enjoy catalogue no. 23 and our “Petites Surprises 2018”. Thanks so much for your very positive feedback I received by email and in person during my journeys through Asia. Merry Christmas to all of you. Have a healthy start to a happy New Year 2019 and enjoy the Burmese weights. Michael Herrfurth

Watercolour painting, Great Dagon Pagoda (Shwedagon) in the centre, in the foreground view of a battle between Burmese and British Army, Lieutenant Joseph Moore (attributed), circa 1824

Lieutenant Joseph Moore - serving with the 89th Regiment in Burma during the first AngloBurmese war between 1824 and 1826 - documented his war time by drawings. Later a few of the drawings were turned into 18 famous prints by George Hunt, published by Thomas Clay, London 1825/1826. Probably this quick watercolour painting, not realized as one of the 18 aquatints, was one of its original sources from 1824. Anyway it's a good reference of history and a nice piece of art. Glued to the passe-partout, which was damaged (not visible when framed), while someone tried to remove the painting. The painting itself is in good condition with some foxing, please see also back cover of the catalogue. Framed in black wooden frame. dimensions:

347 x 300 mm / 13.66 x 11.81 in (l x w, frame size) 170 x 120 mm / 6.69 x 4.72 in (l x w, visible size of painting)
