Very rare and distinctive Haripunchai style glass Buddha from the 12/13th century. This type is generally in stucco or in stone, and occasionally in bronze. This is one of only one of 2 glass ones I've seen in over 25 years of searching, and the other was not made of this special very heavy distinctive glass and did not have such a compelling face. It is also the oldest Thai glass Buddha I have seen by at least 100+ years. Sits 1 3/8" tall and 3 3/8" on its custom base. Beautifully carved and in excellent condition. This kind of glass reportedly has precious metal mixed into it, so it develops a patina as it reacts with the soil during long burial. You will never see another. Could probably be cleaned to bring out a much clearer face and other features, but I'ven ot wanted to touch it(I bought it from a farmer in 1987 who dug it up in the jungle in the 1960's near Lamphun, Thailand which was the site of the old center of the ancient Haripunchai Kingdom)
