Miniature Buddha statue, silver alloy Northern Thailand / Laos, 19th century or earlier (catalogue no. 6)

Dear friends and collectors,

With a few treasures of Asian art and antiques as well as some old Burmese weights, brought to you with our catalogue no. 30, we want to sweeten your run-up to Christmas.

From an old Munich collection we acquired a group of superb miniature Buddha statues, made of silver (a few of high-grade silver others of an alloy with low silver content). They originate from different eras and regions throughout Southeast Asia.

Four Kammavaca manuscripts from our own collection with 4, 5, 6 and 7 lines of script show the evolution of the Kammavaca from the early 1700s to 1935 (dated). The two later manuscripts bear the maker’s signature and the name of city and quarter where it was produced. A rare feature and a special chance for collectors.

To complete the manuscript section we offer a few extraordinary fine sazigyo from mid-19th century to 1925 (dated) as well as an interesting group of title indicators for Thai Buddhist manuscripts.

With silver jewellery from the Golden Triangle and China, Burmese lacquerware, and - for the first time - antique textiles from Laos, Thailand and Cambodia, acquired from an old German collection, we complete Part I of our Christmas Special.

The collectors of Burmese weights find our “Opium Weights” in Part II of the catalogue.

If you are looking for an item that has been already sold, please send us your inquiry by e-mail. Possibly we have similar objects in stock.

2022 was a successful year for our small gallery. We would like to express our sincere thanks to all our friends and customers who made this possible.

Wishing all of you a peaceful Christmas and holiday season as well as good health and happiness for the New Year!

Please enjoy our Christmas Special. Michael

early Hintha 1B, 1 viss, catalogue no. 71

71 A very early Hintha 1B, 1 viss, around 1600 or earlier

A very rare Hintha weight on a circular base. The first one of this standard form in our collection. It’s the forerunner of the H1B weight and bears already its typical features as the food, the vertical line in the wings and the form of the tail, even if it’s remarkable long. It supports the idea that the H1B weight with a circular base belongs to an older group and the octagonal base appears later with the birds and beasts (T1B / T1C).

While the eyes already worn off, the horizontal line decoration on the base, decoration lines on tail, vertical double-lines on both wings and neck feathers are still well visible. A collector’s piece! condition: old wear, natural grown patina weight: 1 viss / 100 tical (1’445 grams) dimensions: 107 x 111 x 73 mm / 4.21 x 4.37 x 2.87 in verification mark: possibly there was a mark in front of the base, but not clear visible anymore

Hintha 1B, 1 viss, catalogue no. 72

72 Hintha 1B, 1 viss, circa 1640

A very good example of a Hintha 1B weight with superb patina. The Hintha stands on an octagonal base. Feathers on wings and neck as well as the typical vertical line decoration on the wings are well visible. The eyes are barely visible. Unfortunately the handle was broken and fixed again. The repair was done quite well (we already bought it in this state), even visible on a closer inspection, also in the pictures at head and tail. That’s why we offer this rare weight, especially in this size, for a reduced price. condition: handle broken and repaired, otherwise fine condition, especially considering age and use weight: 1 viss / 100 tical (1’445 grams) dimensions: 110 x 88 x 72 mm / 4.33 x 3.46 x 2.83 in verification mark: circular depression in front of the base with centre dot provenance: European art market reference: Michael Herrfurth and Hartmut Mollat Beauty and the Beast - Animalshaped Weights of Burma, Arts of Asia, Vol. 43 No. 3, May - June 2013, p. 119, fig. 9 price: sold

Hintha 1B, ½ viss, catalogue no. 73

73 Hintha 1B, ½ viss / 50 tical, circa 1640

This almost 400 years old Hintha 1B weight is one of the highlights of our 2022 weights collection. With a superb smooth surface, dark appealing bronze patina and its elongated design it’s already a striking beauty. But with its unique mouth appendage this H1B weight is a real treasure.

A collector’s piece! condition: There are two small casting flaws on the left wing and below on the base. Otherwise the weight is in excellent age-relating condition. weight: ½ viss / 50 tical (758 grams) height: 86 mm / 3.39 in provenance: private collection, Germany reference: Michael Herrfurth and Hartmut Mollat Beauty and the Beast - Animalshaped Weights of Burma, Arts of Asia, Vol. 43 No. 3, May - June 2013, p. 119, fig. 9 price: sold

75 Hintha 2C “Sleeping Ducks” from Mon State, Burma, circa 1730

From the Mon State of Burma we have three “Sleeping Ducks”, circa 300 years old antiques. The 5 tical weights belong to the older standard of 15 grams per tical, the 10 tical is a H2C with a standard of 16,3 grams per tical (up to the present days). Therefore the H2A weights show the round depression in front of the base, while the H2C weight bear only the 6 ray star as verification mark.

77 Karaweik 1, 2.5 viss / 250 tical, circa 1820 (Konbaung dynasty)

Here we offer a very rare 2.5 viss Karaweik 1 weight (4'009 g) with damages due to foundry mistakes to the tail and handle. Most likely the mould was broken during the foundry process, so that the fire damaged the bronze surface.

The weight itself is in fine worn condition with smooth natural patina. All the details and decoration lines on the wings, neck feathers and base are intact.

Remarkably the weight bears 4 verification marks (outline of a bird, base front right). That means, because of the condition and according to the royal orders, the weight was checked from the Officer at charge again and again at the market to follow the order: “fix a seal to every one of these things or instruments used measuring to verify that it agrees with the standards”. 1 condition: signs of old wear, foundry mistakes to the tail and handle, otherwise good overall condition

102 Chinthe 2B-style, 1 viss, possibly Arakan (Burma), post 1824

A very interesting weight, depicting a tall Chinthe on a quite flat octagonal base that was cast according to the standard form of Chinthe 2B, that also has exactly the standard weight mass of 16,3 g per tical (1’631 grams), but - the wrong verification mark.

Chinthe 2B weights always marked with the 9 ray star base right. Here we find a 4 ray star and unusual decoration on body and base. Otherwise it bears signs of wear and good natural patina, especially where worn. We therefore assume that the weight was not cast officially under administrative supervision in the royal foundries, but could be made in Arakan after the 1st Anglo-Burmese War (18241826), inspired by the standard form of C2B. weight: 1 viss / 100 tical (1’631 grams) height: 127 mm / 5 0 in base: square verification mark: 4 ray star provenance: European art market price: sold

103 Toe 1D, prior to 1776

All Toe 1D weights bear a string of beads, some as a single row others are graced by a double row of pearls around their chest.

The 5 tical weight left and the 10 tical weight in the center bear the double row, the weight right a single one.

Also the mouth appendage in the V-shape, sitting directly on the chest, can be exclusively found on T1D weights.

The beasts standing on an octagonal base, always with a 9 star mark on the right side in front of the base.

All three weights are in good worn condition. The 10 tical weight has a superb bronze patina, the 5 tical weight right is almost black, while the weight left shows a brighter surface.

a) weight: 5 tical (80 grams) height: 38 mm / 1.5 in price: sold b) weight: 10 tical (158 grams) height: 47 mm / 1.85 in price: sold c) weight: 5 tical (78 grams) height: 38 mm / 1.5 in price: 59,50 Euro (incl. 19 % VAT plus packaging and shipping) 50 Euro (VAT free for delivery outside European Union)
