A Burmese Bazaar, Tuck

A Burmese Bazaar, Tuck

Series 7956 Wide – Wide World, Burma. Raphael Tuck & Sons “Oilette” from a painting by R. Talbot Kelly, R.A.
Publisher’s description on the back:

“The native indolence of John Burma’s not disturbed by the presence in his midst of the more enterprising and ubiquitous Chinaman. The latter is more often challenged by Burmese women, who, presiding with suave and natural grace over their stalls, are competent to conduct a bargain eventually satisfactory to themselves.”
Printed in England, divided back, unposted.
