Presenting a fine quality Sinotibetan gilt bronze Buddha figure of good size. Dimensions are 10 inches tall by 7 inches wide and 4 inches deep. Rough estimate of weight is about 4-5 lbs. But this is just a guess.
Has very fine details and retains a good amount of its original gilding. Note fine casting and details of feet and toes, also refined features of face and skillful modeling throughout. Signs of wear and tear and scattered loss of gilding as to be expected in item of this age and nature. I bought this fine piece over ten years or so ago from a reputable dealer who told me it dated to the 17th/18th century.
I know from what Ive heard and seen before that the exact age of Chinese gilt bronzes can be difficult to assess, and there are a lot of fakes on the market. I dont want to risk unintentionally deceiving anyone, because that would really bother me. To my eyes, based on the appearance and quality, I would think this is an antique item belonging to Qing dynasty that is at least 100 years old.
To be honest, I dont have a clue about the exact age. You can always have your own expert look at the pics (in fact I encourage you to do so). Regardless of exact age, its a beautiful piece, displaying very high quality workmanship. Please look at all the details. I only deal in genuine and high quality items, I have no interest in junk.
If I dont know something about a pieceand there is much I do not know about all kinds of thingsI will state so plainly. Please note that I do not guarantee the condition of the frame on any paintings I list; if there is any serious damage or instability I will certainly mention it but otherwise expect there to be some imperfections and look carefully at the images. I only charge what the shipper charges me (and sometimes less than that). All sales are final sales. This will be solely at my discretion.
