Thai Buddha circa 16th/17th century, Ayutthaya period- the head is damaged and at one point appears to have been restored with hard wax, which is why this piece is so inexpensive, could be fixed up with a bit of filler. H: 10.2cm/4in and W: 5.7cm/2.2in

$100.USD 

Good early 20th CE pair of Lanna style Northern Thai Buddhas. The small one on left is amulet sized (H: 5.2cm/2in) with traces of gold and black lacquer and the larger one is a small votive image (H: 7.2cm/2.8in). Of interest, these are cast in zinc which has a much lower melting temperature than bronze which makes it easier to cast in them large numbers and has a much more pleasing appearance and feel than lead.

Classic molded stucco head of a circa 12h–13th century Thai Buddha head from the last independent Mon kingdom of Haripunchai in Thailand (what is now Lamphun).

$750.USD 

Exceptionally rare bronze Burmese/Shan musician which would have been part of Buddhist “nativity ensemble”. These consist of dancers, devotees and musicians celebrating his birth with the young Buddha forming the focal point of the group. Usually these types of images are quite crude and small being placed inside chedis/stupas as a form of merit making and were never meant to be displayed on a Buddhist altar. This one however would have been displayed in private home or temple. I pur ...click for details

$130.USD 

Rare tiger image carved from black coral; this has some Thai Khon script lightly incised on the surface indicating that this has some sort of “protective” power and is a fetish or amulet. The material is quite light in weight and has been lacquered with a patch of gold leaf applied-probably not more than 40 or 50 years old. H: 6.3cm/2.5in and W: 4.8cm/1.8in.

~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $250.USD 

Two fragments of a jade ornament, circa Tang or Liao Dynasties, of a Buddhist celestial being. Obviously these pieces have a lot of calcification but would make good study pieces for a serious jade collector. The workmanship is impossibly minute and fine on these, although it is difficult to tell from the photos, it is well contoured with a good three dimensional quality. See last enlargement for scale.
