ANTIQUE 19thc NEPAL TIBETAN JEWELLED GILDED SILVERED COPPER RHINOCEROS FIGURINE Description
This antique circa 1900 (the leopard in our other listing is much older), Nepal Tibetan figurine of an Asian rhinoceros, is hand worked in copper in a standing position. It has all over applied circular metal strip enclosures, set with mainly turquoise coloured glass cabochons, with a few black ones to the legs. It has white and black glass inset eyes and a carved horn horn. This lovely old piece is apparently unmarked.
It has some dinks, one or two missing enclosures and a few missing turquoise cabochons with some damage to the feet, which we believe is partly down to the manufacturing quality, which is far less refined than the leopard in our other listing. The enclosures are not as well formed and some are not attached properly, there are gaps where the ears are attached etc. However, he is a real cutie, very adorable and does need a good home too (please see photos).
Height 9.6cm, 3.3/4", length 12.8cm, 5.1/32", weight unpacked 135 grams.
