rare antique Burmese bronze
this very unique rare antique Burmese bronze .unsigned.10" tall.Very fine chase work and patination. Excellent ORIGINAL as found condition. Figurines such as these were commissioned by British administrators and their families in Burma as souvenirs and gifts for friends on their return home. They were mostly made in the town of Pegu, 80km from Rangoon, during the 1920s/30s. [Source: Fraser-Lu, Sylvia,Burmese Crafts: Past and Present, Oxford University Press, 1994].
