SPECTACULAR 15th C. CHIANG SAEN BUDDHA
22 inches tall, 16 inches wide, 10 inches deep temple size. Because of the prevalence of fakes in the marketplace, this buddha was metallurgically verified by electron microscopy by our conservator (report included). No losses or repairs. It has a clear documented provenance from the son of the former owner, who bought it 60 years ago while a US Army OSS officer in Southeast Asia. From the same collection as the 11th - 12th century Khmer Ganesha we are selling. Imposing and beautiful. We have seen a very similar (unverified) one at the toney New York Asian Antiques Show for $18,000.
