A VERY RARE MUSEUM QUALITY GILT BRONZE COPPER ALLOY FIGURINE. SHE STANDS 5.25" TALL. THE GILT IS 98% INTACT AND ORIGINAL. THE DETAILS ARE THE FINEST I'VE EVER SEEN, MUSEUM QUALITY. THERE IS A PROVONANCE THAT GOES WITH IT...ORIGINALLY OWNED BY A BRITISH DIPLOMAT GIVEN TO HIM WHILE IN TIBET IN THE 1940'S, HIS NAME WAS ROBERT FORD. HE SOLD IT IN GREAT BRITAN SOME YEARS LATER TO A ANTIQUES DEALER AND THE FAMILY THAT BOUGHT IT IN THE 1970'S BROUGHT IT TO AMERICA WHERE IT'S BEEN IN THE FAMILY EVER SINCE. I RECENTLY PURCHASED IT FROM ONE OF THE SONS, THEIR FATHER WAS A ARCHITECT IN MANHATTEN THAT RECENTLY PASSED. THIS IS A RARELY FOUND ITEM. I CHECKED WITH BONHAMS IN MANHATTEN AND THEIR RECENT SALE IN CALIFORNIA AND ALSO ONE IN HONG KONG AND ON VERY SIMILAR ALITTLE NEWER IN SAN FRANCISCO , LOT 8280 DESCRIBED AS A FIGURE OF WHITE TARA, QING DYNASTY, IT BROUGHT 40,000 THIS YEAR. AND I FOUND ANOTHER WHICH LOOKS ALMOST IDENTICAL BUT IS 8" TALL AND NOT IN AS GOOD CONDITION WISE, DESCRIBED AS GILT COPPER ALLOY FIGURE OF MAITREYA, YONGLE, AND SIGNED. SAME FACE AND HAND POSE, ALMOST IN AS GOOD CONDITION WISE AND IT BROUGHT A WHOPPING $510,231.00 IN NOV. 26TH 2007. I WAS GOING TO PUT IT IN A NEW YORK sale FOR ASIA WEEK BUT I'M GOING TO TRY IT ON HERE BEFORE I CONSIGN IT, SO IF YOU WANT IT FOR LESS HERE'S YOUR CHANCE. IT COULD BE AS LATE ASMIDDLE PERIODQING DYNASTY BUT WAS TOLD AND I AGREE IT'S EARLIER, MIGHT BE 16TH CENTURY BUT AM ADVERTISING IT AS LATE 17TH TO LATE 18TH TO BE SAFE, THE DETAIL IS UNBELIEVABLE, EXTREMELY HIGH GRADE MUSEUM QUALITY DETAIL AND GUARANTEED TO BE AUTHENTIC. DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT'S WORTH BUT COMPARED TO THE EXAMPLES I'VE FOUND IT'S A 40K + PIECE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. A ONE TIME IN RECENT YEARS IT WAS CLEANED UP PROFESSIONALLY, ALL ORIGINAL GILT. *****A RARE GEM HERE*********BUT WE ARE ALWAYS HERE TO SELL SO LETS MAKE A DEAL.
