17TH - 18TH C. LARGER U-THONG
Similar in form and age to the smaller U-Thong we are selling, this piece has its original burial patina, where the smaller one has been polished. Some people clean and polish these pieces, some leave them exactly as found. In general I prefer to leave pieces as found. This buddha has a red and green patina, with a great deal of cuprite penetration into the metal. As with the other one, I guarantee that it is at least 200 years old, but I think it is older. It stands 18 1/2 inches tall, with no significant defects.
