The weight is the shape of a seated figure - Ganesh of a figure holding his hands to his eyes as if in mourning?, quite peculiar and interesting for collectors, perhaps unique type in private in collections.

Weight: 21,02 grams.

Condition: Choice, much smooth wear and a fine original brown patina. High tin content bronze alloy.

Provenance: Important Danish Private Collection of Opium Weights, collected between 1970s-1990 with a focus on the rare to very rare weights from different places in SE Asia.
