Seller: halnanne (3,264) 100%, Location: Newark, Delaware, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382630774679 I buy vintage linens at local estate auctions to pass them along to you and always look for unusual items. This is a miniature carving of the seated Buddha, from an estate with a large collection of Asian artifacts. It is quite small, measuring 2.5" high by about 1.5" wide at its widest. The wood is very dark and has a pronounced grain; the bottom is an irregular oval and you can see some marks that may be saw marks. The Buddha is seated in a lotus position, and his pedestal has intricate designs. The face is also detailed, so please use the zoom feature to see all the great details. The wood is quite dark and to me it feels heavy for its size. I found no cracks in this. This is out of my area of expertise, so please write in if you can help identify this, its period, or origin. It is a lovely decorative piece that you can place anywhere because of its miniature size. It would certainly make a nice gift. Please contact me if you have any questions. I am storing this in my smoke-free home, but I do have a cat who sheds copiously, so be aware if you have allergies. Please contact me for more information or photos. I am happy to combine items to save on shipping, so check my other listings too. Thanks for looking!
