TRAVEL DIARY OF JEAN DUMOULIN
During my first travel in Bagan, I fell in love with the Hsun Ok lacquerware, these recipients in a pagoda form mounted on a stand present a timeless and perfect design. The first pieces I have purchased had a lot of trouble arriving in Antwerp, but after several months, the latter arrived intact, despite a quite rudimentary packaging.
This lacquerware is in average condition, it was “locally” restored and presents lacks (have a look at the pictures). However, it is stable, solid and very decorative.
It will be carefully packaged and sent by insured mail with track & trace via Bpost.
