Summer Sale 2016 Without too many words: There are a few standard weights between 1 viss and half a tical to complete your collection. With examples from the “sleeping ducks” to the Toe and Chinthe weights we offer the whole range of Burmese animal-shaped standard weights from the 17th up to 19th century. Considering that summer time is a low business season, that we (most-likely) already spent a lot of money for summer holiday and that browsing this catalogue on your iPad, sitting in a deckchair on the beach, should be a relaxing event, we offer the weights in our catalogue, 20 lots – 70 pieces, for very special summer prices, valid 15 days only. If you find any piece of art you are interested in, please send your order including the number of the item to: sale@opiumgewichte.com If you have any question about the offered items or would like to request further images or information please do not hesitate to contact us. 1 For your purchase you will receive a purchase receipt. For export outside the European Union the quoted price will be reduced by the value added tax (VAT). Please let us remind you to pay attention to customs and tax regulations in your country. The items will be sold in accordance with the current version of our General Conditions of sale and delivery, the revocation rights mentioned at the end of the catalogue and according to the order of incoming reservations. The availability of the items listed in the catalogue as well as in the online gallery (www.opiumgewichte.com) is not explicitly guaranteed. Please lay back again, enjoy our “Summer Sale 2016” and your summer holidays. With my best wishes Michael Herrfurth Standard Weights of Burma Summer Sale 2016 – Catalogue no. 18
