We do not carry out appraisals or valuations. These require a professional expert to see and examine the original piece. Valuations are subjective and require a willing buyer and a willing seller on the open market in a particular location.
We will, however, be happy to give you our opinion of the identity and use of an object based on over 40 years’ experience of buying and collecting.
Ubud is the cultural and artistic center of Bali and many of the finest works of craftsmanship turn up at Murni’s Warung Shop, right beside and part of her restaurant, Murni’s Warung. Murni was one of the first to have a proper gallery of Asian antiques and tribal art in Ubud, Bali. She started her shop at the same time as her famous restaurant in 1974.
Murni travels extensively in Asia, searching out rare and unusual pieces. Her sources are the best and many of her pieces are museum quality.
But whether they are commissioned pieces or objects from Murni’s private collection, you’ll marvel at the variety you’ll find in her shop.
Murni spends most of her time in her restaurant and Murni’s Warung Shop, where the best pieces are.
As you can see, there are really too many things to describe, especially as they constantly change.
There are antiques, collectibles, small baubles perfect for gifts, and treasures too large to take home in your suitcase — which is why we offer shipping to anywhere in the world.
There’s little you can imagine that you won’t find in Murni’s Warung Shop.
