Antique 19th Century Indian Bronze / Brass Statue of Hindu Deity, c1890
About the item: Antique 19th century Indian bronze / brass statue of a Hindu deity, c1890. It is nicely cast and heavy for its size. It has good detailing and colour/patina. There is a peacock/mythical bird finial on the rear. Which moves when pressure is applied (I suspect this has always been the case as there is a hand hammered rivet securing it to the main statue). Overall condition is good with only minor wear /rubbing in line with age and use. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item. Size: 18 cm tall x 12 cm wide. About me: I have been a passionate collector of antiques and collectables for over 30 years. My tastes are diverse and range from fine antique furniture, African, Indian and Asian ethnographic antiques and tribal art, to vintage slot machines - the more unusual and curious the better!
I have travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, India, North America and much of my collection has been sourced in the Country of origin. After many years of collecting I decided to start to sell and have established'Curious Antiques' which specialises in a range of fine and more unusual antiques.
These include fine furniture, religious items, militaria, amusement machines and one of the Countries best collections of African, Chinese, Eastern and Indian tribal and ethnographic antiques. I value your custom and will do all I can to keep you happy and satisfied.
