Vintage/Antique Collection Of Coral Buddha Figurines
Where to begin.
We offer here a set of 3 Buddha figurines in various poses of standing and sitting. These figurines are carved from Red Coral by a master carver who, with incredible skill, incorporated the character of natural coral into the carvings, instead of carving it away. The effect is stunning. Truly a case of not being able to appreciate the quality of these figurines from their photographs. Much better, to a different level of appreciation, in person.
These figurines were acquired as a set. They were received in the vintage/antique box also shown in the photographs. We believe the set to be antique, but absent provenance we will conservatively date them as vintage.We have been asked by several of our Coral collectors to break-up the set but for the time being we hope to pass to a collector who will provide a home to all three.
The tallest Standing Buddha measures approximately 78mm in height an weighs 70.3 grams. The shorter Standing Buddha measures 44mm in height and weighs 44.8 grams. The Seated Buddha measures 34mm in height and weights 41.7 grams.
