Authentic 15thC Thai Bronze Sukhothai Buddha. Sits 8.75 inches tall for the bronze only, 10 inches including the base. Nice cheerful example. The loer part of the oricinal base is missing. It was not uncommon in the is early period in Thailand when bronze was scarce to remove the base from revered Buddhas and using them to make new Buddhas. As long as the body of the Buddha was left fully intact, the old statue was considered unharmed. Would pop even more if lightly cleaned. Far rarer than the Ayuthaya or Rattanakosin or Northern Thai Buddhas more commonly found on the market, and earlier than most as well. Showes great espressiveness for its type.
