This is a group of 4 wonderful 17-19thC Burmese Buddhist items: usually I sell items of this quality separately, but I have begun to realize that I put a large amount of time in to listing and mailing pieces individually, and want to try to sell some groups of pieces. They have come from travels, auction lots, estates, and from dealers over the past 10 years. The tallest is a special 17thC early Shan style Buddha with a stylized lotus leaf mandorla. He has a great ancient serene face and a complex patina with traces of original gilding. I have had many of this style over the years-this is one of the nicest. The terracotta one is an unommon Mon style piece that is at least 18/19thC, and possibly much earlier. Some wear as expected, with red lacquer and original gilding. There is also a distinctive 19thC Shan style Buddha in Royal Attire that is cast out of a lead bronze alloy. The style of attire is very unusual. The final piece is a fantastic miniature 18th or possibly 19thC bronze Buddha. I had a few of this style that I bought many years ago. This is one of the last two in my collection. I have never seen any other miniature bronze Burmese Buddhas of this type other than this cache. The detail and patina are exceptional. The pieces range in size from 1 and 5/8 inches high to 3 and 1/4 inches tall. A unique collection that will give you many hours of enjoyment.
