Solid 9k Gold 11oz Figurine Statue Antique Very Rare (over $6,000 Gold Value):
Thank you for checking out my sale. I am selling a very rare antique that I acquired over my many years of going to estate sales. The figurine statue is a Buddha with what looks like either Tibet or Napal writing on it. The statue is over 33% pure solid gold. Normally that is not a lot but due to the figurine being so heavy it is a very large amount of pure 24k gold.Details- This figurine is 11 ounces of 9 karat gold. With today's prices of gold that is over $6,000 in gold alone. But being pre 1900s and hand crafted it has more than just gold value. I had it tested by an expert to confirm its gold content. The test was taken from the inside of the figurine. I was advised against melting it down or doing anything else that would damage it due to the fact that as an antique work of art it is worth more than just scrap gold value. The figurine is only 4 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide at base, but due to the gold it is very heavy. I included pictures next to a ruler as well. Feel free to ask me any questions and good luck offerding. I did not list this statue with a reserve because I do not want to scare everyone away with a high starting offer price.

There was a typo in my description. The weight of the statue is actually a little over 12 ounces. Just wanted to clarify that. Thank you and good luck
