Huge Ancient Stone Chinese Song Yuan Or Ming Dynasty Buddhist Tablet Authentic For Sale
HUGE ANCIENT AUTHENTIC CHINESE SONG/YUAN DYNASTY BUDDHIST
ACQUIRED FROM A BRIAN PAGE ANTIQUES sale!
exceedingly rare 16” by 13-1/4”, 22 lbs stone tablet was excavated from a
Buddhist site in the Yunnan
province in South West China. It dates
to the Song Dynasty (AD 960-1279), Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279-1268) or possibly the
Ming Dynasty. It has various
Sanskrit-type characters, the Buddhist script of the time period, permanently incised
in stone. I have not had the ancient
writings interpreted but believe it to be some kind of prayer.
acquired this outstanding example a few years ago from a Brian Page Antiques
sale in Brighton, United Kingdom. This reputable firm was established in 1968
and they act as consultants and specialized dealers in authentic Asian Art and
Antiquities. I will include a copy of
the Brian Page Antiques sale description and images.

A Special Note On Authenticity: I am a member of the A.A.C.A in good standing. I hold fast to their policies of authenticity
and believe in providing 100% genuine artifacts to the collecting community. You will find that I have taken the extra
steps of having most grade 7 through 10 artifacts papered, sometimes multiple
times if the value and degree of rarity dictates it. There is nothing worse than a buyer getting
taken by an unscrupulous con artist operating here on . In my experience, I have found that over 50%
of the artifacts publicly offered are either fake, been rechipped, modified, mistyped
or misrepresented. This hurts collectors and honest dealers, alike. You can count on me to provide verified,
vetted and genuine objects.
currently on the board of directors for the International Meteorite Collectors
Association (I.M.C.A.). I have been a
member of the I.M.C.A. since the beginning, was previously elected by my peers
to serve in the officers position of Secretary and I adhere to the most
stringent Code of Ethics in the industry.
The I.M.C.A. is a nonprofit corporation that adheres to the strictest
standards of authenticity. Although the I.M.C.A. doesn’t directly apply
to artifacts, basically the same code of ethics and guarantee of authenticity
My IMCA number is 2185, which can be referenced on the I.M.C.A.

Why ?: I can offer world-class artifacts at a reasonable
price since most large sale houses and galleries seem out of touch with
current economic conditions. I find high
catalog fees, excessive commission rates and buyer premiums repulsive. When added together, these fees can total up
to 50% or more! Remember, quality is
always the best way to preserve or increase your returns on investments,
especially in the collectables sector.
Collector and investment grade artifacts have always outperformed all
others. I want to earn your trust and
repeat patronage by offering them here on .
Please Read Important Shipping
Information: Please wait until the
end of the sale session before paying and I will promptly send an invoice
including combined shipping on multiple items.
I do not make anything on shipping. As a matter of fact, when PayPal
fees, gem jars, inserts and packing material are taken into account, I actually
lose money on shipping.
Shipping Costs: A US Parcel Post Mail fee of $40.00 will be added to
the final offer price which includes delivery confirmation. I combine shipping on
multiple orders. International shipping
will cost $250.00 due to the heavy packed weight of this item. I ship the vast majority of items within one
business day of payment.
A Special Note To Our Friends Overseas: I will not ship artifacts to foreign countries unless
specified otherwise due to the risk of loss, unclear international laws and the
lack of an inexpensive shipping method to track to your door. For the time being, I still do ship mineral
and meteorites specimens overseas. I
will make arrangements for overseas shipping if arrangements are made ahead of
end of sale
Thank you very much for looking and if
you are offerding, good luck!
