Comment about Finn Marrita Nurmi’s show is native Vietnamese (September 21, 2005)

I have a collection of Thanh Le painting I purchased at his shop in Saibon in the mid 1960's. Christies in Hong Kong ofered me $2000 for one piece which is a gold leaf lacquer of villagers working a rice paddy. I won't sell them. Too personally precious to me, and I have had them too long to give them up.

Problem is many Than Le's are not from the original Thanh Le of the mid 1900's. There is a shop in Hanoi called Thanh Le that has no relation to the original Thanh Le.

You would have to get your lacquer ware appraissed by an expert to ascertain value. I genuine, it is certainly worth a minimum bo $750 on up to the 1000's.

Regards, Jack
