Foreword

The Kids VI Even after 5 Kids-catalogues with about 350 of the smallest weights it is still amazing to see, how detailed and with how much attention and effort these tiny treasures were produced. During the last two years we collected about 100 bronze weights from Burma, Laos and Thailand for the present catalogue. From an old collection we’ve got the last group of the smallest Chinthe weights, which were ever issued. Interestingly - and in contrast to all the other standard forms Chinthe 2B has a decimal system for weights smaller 1/2 tical, which consists 1/5, 1 /10 and finally 1/20 tical weights instead of 1 /2, 1/4, 1/8 etc. These smallest weights of one-tenth and one-twentieth tical are extremely rare, especially when they appear in good condition as they do here in the catalogue. Therefore we are pleased to offer 16 Chinthe weights, some with great patina, smooth surface and mostly a precise 9 ray star mark under the base. A few weights even show the “dot-in-a-circle” mark on the back of the base. With eight so-called “lion-dog” weights (Toe 1B) we got another interesting group from various sources. Since T1B weights are generally hard to find, we all the more pleased to offer this group of T1B kids. It’s always a surprise to see that also the oldest weights (pre-1600), even in their smallest version, were issued with all the details and beauty as the bigger ones. Even if the foreword seems to be focussed on the lion weights, our bird collection shows a few real treasures, carefully described with the objects. Finally we added a few extraordinary pieces from northern Siam and Laos, which hopefully will attract your eyes. Our Laotian horse (figure left) is one of the unique and most valuable highlights. Please enjoy our catalogue 24. With our best wishes, Michael

Toe 1A with lotus tail, prior to 1600

Both lion-shaped weights represent the oldest form of the Burmese weights and were issued clear before 1600. Even if both weights are very similar regarding the decoration lines, beard, tail, scratched mane, hair lines etc., interestingly the weight left is equal to the Laotian standard (1 tamlin), while the weight right seems to be close to the oldest Burmese kyat mass (according to Gear about 11 grams), what means it is a 3 tical weight.

Toe 1A, prior to 1600

This group of four Toe 1A weights shows the effort by the foundry men to produce even the smallest weights with detailed to almost lavish decoration. The weight left (2 a, see also the catalogue cover) shows a special base decoration with vertical and horizontal lines, even the hairs of the mane are still visible. The weight center left bears, as the only one in this group, a long horse tail and was placed on an octagonal base. Also the lion center right is well elaborated. The small lion right lost some material from wear, which results in 1,5 gram lower weight compared to the average of the group. The small collection of T1A weights shows, how widely the design characteristics of these form vary, compared to the later, uniform standard forms, starting with Toe 1B. a) with lotus tail weight: height:

Toe 1A with lotus tail, prior to 1600

It’s always amazing that we still find a few of these tiny weights of the oldest lion form. They are worn, but all the details are well visible and the lion-shape can be clearly identified. The tip of the lotus tail on the weight in the center has a small chip and the front of the base on the weight right is worn. But in generally, considering age and use, the condition is surprisingly good. a) weight: height:

4 Toe 1B (“lion-dog”), circa 1640 During the last two years we luckily found a large group of quite rare Toe 1B weights in various sizes, which are offered the first time here in lots 4 to 6. All these 2 tical weights in lot 4, also called “lion-dogs”, are in excellent condition. The weight left bears traces of red lacquer on the hind leg left, the weight in the center has a rich dark, almost black patina and the weight right seems to be readjusted with lead on both sides between body and base. All three weights are marked with the 4-rayed star under the base. Rare collector’s treasures! a) weight: height:

Toe 1B (“lion-dog”), circa 1640

These two quarter tical weights are also rare finds. The Toe left bear the 4-rayed star mark under the base, while a verification mark on the weight right is not visible. Weight 6 a) has a beautiful patina (what the images not really show), but a small casting defect on the head right. Weight 6 b), with a pronounced horse tail, shows some incrustations and a few fine scratches, where someone tried to remove the dirt. a) weight: height:

Toe 1C and Toe 2 (right), 1 and 2 tical, circa 1680

Despite a hole on the back (left side), our lot 7 a) has the perfect kyat mass. The reddish surface shows rich traces of black lacquer. Just 3 rays remain from a 6-rayed star mark under the base. Both weights in the center are slightly worn (the eyes are disappeared), but they still show a beautiful silvery patina. Decoration lines, ears and horns are well visible.

Beside the broken lower tip of the tail, the weight left is in very good condition and bears a detailed string of beads as well as the 9-dotted mark under the base. The T1D center left is well worn with a smooth surface and rich dark patina. A verification mark is not visible (anymore?). Both C1 weights, center right and right, show the 4 ray star mark under the base. Weight center right is worn, but with the narrow neck, it’s a quite interesting piece.

Left and center left we have two C2A weights without mouth appendage, but with the 9rayed star mark under the base. Center right and right are two C2B weights, each with the typical beard. The quarter tical weight is in rare good condition. All four weights show excellent patina from dark brown to silvery-grey. The half tical C2B with nice distinctive characteristics (beard and mane) has been readjusted with a wire belt around its hips.

Chinthe 2A and Toe 1D, prior to 1776 resp. about 1730

Hitherto we found only weights of 5 tical and above with this special knobbed base. But here we got the rare chance to offer two 2 tical weights, one Chinthe 2A with square base and one Toe 1D with octagonal base. Both are in good condition, each with the precise 9 ray star mark under the base. Two exclusive “one-of-a-kind� pieces. a) weight:

Chinthe 2B, 18th century

From an old collection we got the last lot of the smallest weights that have ever been made. It seems that Chinthe 2B weights below 1/5 tical do not bear a mouth appendage anymore. This feature cannot, therefore, be relied on to separate C2A and C2B. Since Chinthe 2B weights are the only standard form with a decimal denomination below ½ tical it could be assumed that lot 12 and 13 are C2B weights. a) 9 ray star under the base barely visible, smooth surface, beautiful patina weight: 1/20 tical (0,7 g) height: 15 mm / 0.59 in price: 53,55 Euro (incl. 19 % VAT plus packaging and shipping) 45 Euro (VAT free for delivery outside European Union) b) 9 ray star under the base partly visible, tall base, small detailed Chinthe figurine weight: 1/20 tical (0,6 g) height: 15 mm / 0.59 in price: sold c) rare example with flat base, some incrustations, still good condition weight: 1/20 tical (0,7 g) height: 13 mm / 0.51 in price: 41,65 Euro (incl. 19 % VAT plus packaging and shipping) 35 Euro (VAT free for delivery outside European Union) d) 9 ray star under the base well visible, nice condition, smooth surface weight: 1/10 tical (1,2 g) height: 16 mm / 0.63 in price: sold

Even on the one-tenth tical weight we find the dot-in-circle mark on the back of the base sometimes. Most of the smallest weights we see with tall bases.

Pumpkin weights, pre-1600

Our three pumpkin weights show a lot of wear. The tip of the rail of the 1 tical weight left, 15 a), is broken off. Beside of that it’s in good condition. The weights center (in very good condition) and right have dark black-green-reddish patina. The beak of weight 15 c), right, seems to be chipped. a) weight: price:

Our excellent Hintha 1B weight left is in great condition. All grooves filled with black lacquer, the smooth surface shows a perfect patina. The vertical lines on both wings are well visible. The weight in the center is well worn, shows a wonderful patina too, but here in goldenbrown and a very smooth surface. As it is the case with the two pumpkins above (15 b & c), the 1 tical H1B weight right shows also red colour on wide parts of its surface.

Both of our rare Hintha 1A weights still show the vertical double line on the wings as well as red colour on the surface, as the previous weights also do. Even well worn, they are in pretty good condition, considering an age of 400+ years. While the Hintha right sits on a circular base, the weight left surprisingly has not the expected octagonal, but a heptagonal base, what is obviously a unique mistake of the founder. a) weight: price:

All four weights of our Hintha 2C group are in very good condition. As verification mark we find the 6-rayed star under the tall octagonal base of all four weights. The weight left comes without any line decoration around the base, but with an amazing dark shining patina, while the other three weights have a horizontal double line base decoration.

Hintha 1C with rare tall base, circa 1760

Seated on a remarkable tall base, decorated with three horizontal lines, it’s a rare Hintha 1C weight in very good condition. The dark, almost black patina is only slightly worn off at the extremities, leaving a smooth surface with warm bronze colour. The 9-rayed star on the bottom of the octagonal base is well visible. weight: height:

Hintha / Rooster, Arakan (?), post-1826

A Hintha bird weight with unusual chicken-like shape. There is a scratched cross or 6 ray star under a most-likely hexagonal base. Rich traces of black coating covers the reddishgolden surface of the bird. Probably Arakan with a verification mark, inspired by Burmese Hintha 3A or Shan forms. weight: height:

Karaweik 1, circa 1820

The Karaweik left shows thick black coating and, where worn off, a lovely reddish-copper patina appears with a smooth surface. Under the base we have a good bird mark. Our Karaweik 1 has an interesting compact shape with an upwards curved tail. A good collector’s piece! The center piece is well worn with a smooth surface and rich reddish-brown, shining patina. The bird sits on a tall base with two horizontal lines. The bird mark is partly visible. Both have an octagonal base, which is worn and rounded off from use.

Karaweik 1, circa 1820

Both Karaweik weights show a great dark patina. We know two different forms of Karaweiks, one with two and the other one with three rows of neck feathers. Even both weights are quite similar, the weight left comes with the three rows of neck feathers and the weight right with two. The Karaweik verification mark is always the outline of a bird, here stamped under the base. Interestingly on the Karaweik 2 weight we often find scratched marks, but rarely sometimes also stamped ones. Also the later Karaweik 2 standard form of the Shan states appears with two and three rows of neck feathers.

Hintha 3A1 / Hintha 3A2, circa 1820

We cannot separate the smallest weights of the standard forms H3A1 and H3A2 from the rows of neck feathers anymore. Since both bear the 6 ray star mark under the base, they can only separate because they may slightly differ from the shape of the neck. So, probably we have two H3A1 left and one H3A2 right. H3A1 left has a great dark patina. The 1 tical center weight is almost completely covered with shining black lacquer, while underneath the black, red lacquer appears. A very interesting small H3A1, especially because it turn its head slightly, looking right. The H3A1 weight right has a rich dark bronze patina. All three weights show still the elongated eyes in contrast to the protruding eyes of the Hintha 3B forms. Also a good characteristic to distinguish the Hintha 3 forms. a) weight: price: b) weight: price: c) weight: price:

Hintha 3A2, circa 1820

Here we have a set of small Hintha 3A2 weights, all with a well visible 6-rayed star under the base. All four weights show still the elongated eyes of the earlier H3 forms, are lovely worn and the 2 one quarter weights right show rich traces of black coating, on the weight center right (25 c) above a red coloured layer. Our four weights are in good condition. All details are well visible. a) weight: price:

All, except 26 c), with the 6 ray star mark under the base. 2 tical left on tall base with dark patina. Center left with bright reddish surface and black coating. The half tical weight, center right, comes with grey-silvery patina, covered with red lacquer - a remarkable piece, close to Hintha 2C, but already with hexagonal base. A special collector’s piece!

Hintha 3A2 / Hintha 3B, prior to 1858

Here we see the difference between Hintha 3A and Hintha 3B regarding the shape of the eyes (H3A2 bird left and center with elongated eyes and H3B bird right with protruding eyes). Also the verification mark supports this assumption (outline of a bird under the base left and center, weight right without mark). Anyway, the weight left has a good patina with surprisingly reddish surface, weight center a good rich bronze patina and the weight right a great bronze underneath layers of black. a) weight: price:

28 Group of horses, Laos / northern Thailand, 19th century or earlier Our Laotian weight left is the most excellent horse weight we’ve ever seen. Beside the wonderful detailed decoration, the rich bronze patina is impressive. An invaluable rare treasure! The patina of the horse weight center might not be shining as the weight right, but the decoration is surprisingly good. See the framing of the ears, the three raised circular marks on the back, the detailed mane and base decoration as well as the various body line decorations. Also a unique treasure! Our horse right might be the best documented weight available. It’s displayed in Braun’s famous book and was sold on a German auction. Finally it’s available here in the catalogue. Even if the tail seems to be broken off and lost, it’s a unique collector’s treasure. a) weight: 1 tamlin (36,6 g) height: 33 mm / 1.3 in length: 41 mm / 1.61 in price: sold b) weight:

Elephants, Goat, northern Siam / Laos, pre-1900

Mostly elephant weights are plain, only with two or three horizontal lines on the base. But here we have a rare piece with extraordinary decoration and a pyramid on the back, similar to Braun’s no. 219 to 228. Rare detailed elaborated work and a real collector’s treasure!! Interestingly the weight center is placed on a knobbed decorated base, showing partly red colour surface and a dark brownish patina. Finally we have a goat on an elongated base, with a rare good bronze patina. All the details are intact. a) weight: price:

Pot-shaped weights, Laos, 19th century

All our Laotian weights can be referred to the excellent work of Joachim Gabel. Here we have a group of pot-shaped weights with four to eight circular lines around the top. The weight center left with 6 lines is unusual flat with rich dark patina, our weight center right has only 4 lines but an attractive golden brown patina, while the weights outside left and right have 6 and even 8 lines with great shining bronze patina (right, 30 d). It’s a good group to show the various designs of that standard form. reference:

Spheroid weights, Laos, 19th century

Similar to the pot-shaped weights (no. 30) these group of four spheroids shows the diversity of the design and material, which was used for this standard form. Left we have a weight in very good condition with two horizontal lines and a center knob, fine dark patina. The top of the weight center left is almost completely worn off, leaving a very smooth surface with rich brown patina. While the center knob is almost vanished, the upper horizontal line is still partly visible. The weight center right has a lovely golden patina. The center knob is well visible. Neither center knob nor horizontal line are visible on the weight right, but at the top seems to be a small elevated bulge. a) weight: height: price:

On the reverse is a hole with a pin inside. It’s the first spheroid weight we found in that design. Compared to no. 33 it seems to be issued before this standardized shape. weight: height: diameter:
