    Try : River City Centre, Bangkok, you can google it for the address. The top floors are full of antique shops but be prepared to haggle. Good monthly auction there too.

    You could of course buy one from me in the UK !

    Can't really suggest anywhere in Bangkok but River City would be OK if you want an expensive "antique".

    If you want a more modern piece try to make a trip to Ang Sila between Pattaya and Bangkok; many shops there with a huge variety of stone carvings etc..

    I saw a great one in a shop the other day but it's in Chiang Mai. If you're up here the guy is worth buying stuff from. He has 2 great shops in the city.

    I too would be grateful for the chaps business address if he is a straight dealer. I am not interested in looted Khmer artefacts which most of the Thai dealers up there want to trade in.

    I would be delighted to have his business address and thank you.
    Always looking for new sources for good stock.
    I am off to Laos and Cambodia next week so grateful for any pointers, it keeps my suppliers on their toes when they know i have other/new contacts. Many thanks
