Burmese animal-shaped Weights The Weights of the last Kings - Catalogue no. 15


The Weights of the last Kings (1819-1885) King Bodawpaya died on 5 June 1819, leaving behind the second largest Burmese empire after king Bayinnaung of Taungoo during the 16th century. For unclear reasons with his dead the square based lion weights – also called “king weights” – have ceased and only weights in the shape of a Hintha with the 6-rayed star mark (figure 1) or the simplified outline of a bird (figure 2) and the Karaweik weights with the bird-sign were issued yet. It is noteworthy that the bird mark on the right front of the base seems to be punched, in contrast to the Shan bird mark, which is engraved. It is strange that a stamp hasn’t been found yet.

Figure 1

Figure 3 Between Bodawpaya's death and New Year 1886, when Myanmar became part of the British empire, five kings ruled in three different capitals. First Bagydaw decided to move the capital from Amarapura back to Ava. Bagydaw's brother, King Tharrawaddy (reg. 1837-1846), moved the capital to Amarapura again in 1842. After King Pagan (reg. 18461853), who stayed in Amarapura, King Mindon (reg. 1853-1878) moved the capital finally to Mandalay, where with the reign of the last Burmese king, Thibaw Min (reg. 18781885), and the third Anglo-Burmese war the 1,200 years old Burmese monarchy ended.

Figure 2 The present catalogue has been dedicated to the Hintha bird weights issued first during the reign of king Bogydaw (reg. 1819-1837), which can be divided in three groups, Hintha 3A1 (figure 3), Hintha 3A2 (figure 4) and Hintha 3B (figure 5). Between the above mentioned standard forms of the Hintha 3 weights there are various forms with short and longer body (figure 6) or transitional forms with strongly curved tail somewhere among the Hintha and Karaweik shape (figure 7) that could be further sub-grouped. The three Anglo-Burmese wars (1824-1826, 1852, and 1885-1886) leads to massive changes and eliminates the Burmese monarchy finally in 1885, when the last king Thibaw Min was exiled to India.

Figure 4 The slight but significant changes in the shape of the Hintha weights between H3A1, H3A2, and H3B have been caused by the historical facts described above. The H3A weights bear the 6-rayed star mark. Almost all the H3B weights (except a few with embossed outline of a bird) as well as the Hintha weights, which deviating from the standard form (figure 8) are unmarked. Most likely they were issued as “Outlaws” in areas already occupied by the British after 1826 (Arakan and Tenasserim) or after 1852 (The Lower Myanmar including Pegu). It can be

assumed that a considerable number of H3B weights were still produced in the early 20th century.

120/121, table 1. So far two or more weights are illustrated in one image – they are always described from left to right and top to bottom.

Figure 8 Figure 5 Brass weights appeared in Burma, with zinc brought by the British colonial rulers and have been issued yet under royal authority prior to 1886 as Hintha 3A2, bearing an accurate 6-rayed star verification mark.

Many of the weights offered in the present catalogue we purchased from three German collections, acquired in Burma between 1978 and 1985. The provenance is part of the description. It is particularly noteworthy that many of the weights from the old collections are covered with black and/or red coating.

Compared to the H3A1 standard form this weight differs in special details. The mouth is slightly opened and the base bears no notches. The head crest is very flat and the forehead as well. Considering this, it’s a special rare form among the Hintha 3A1 weights.

The warm shining brass colour of the surface contrasts the mostly dark patina of the earlier bronze weights. As usual for later H3B weights the material changed from bronze to brass, but also the form of the base changed from hexagonal to almost circular. All the 8 weights were originally covered with black lacquer, the 5 and 2 tical weights in addition with red under black lacquer. The 10 tical weight shows scratches from removing the black coating but traces of lacquer still remained. provenance:

20.400 g (Standard: 16,33 g/tical) 180 mm / 7.09 in 285 mm / 11.22 in (on the circular base) Inscription: "12" (viss) "50" (tical) in Burmese numerals

age:

"The weights were certainly in use in 1878 AD and probably before" (Forbes, Gear & Gear)

remarkable:

Rarely weights like this can be found in pagodas for the use of worshippers to ask The Buddha, whether the decision they made is right (in particular, whether the boyfriend would be the right future husband). If the stone is easy to lift up, the answer is “yes”. Photo previous page: Shwemawdaw Paya, Bago (Pegu) © Michael Herrfurth Gallery 2015

The weights were produced of marble, found in the Sagyin quarries, north of Mandalay, following the Mandalay-Myitkyina-Hwy, near the Ayeyarwady. A few small quarries are still working until today to provide the marble stone for the Buddha images. Condition: Nicely carved with symmetric patterns and Burmese inscription, partly soiled and discoloured. references:

Haftungsausschluss Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden sind ausgeschlossen, soweit nachfolgend nichts anderes bestimmt ist. Der vorstehende Haftungsausschluss gilt auch zugunsten der gesetzlichen Vertreter und Erfüllungsgehilfen des Anbieters, sofern der Kunde Ansprüche gegen diese geltend macht. Von dem unter Ziffer 1 bestimmten Haftungsausschluss ausgenommen sind Schadensersatzansprüche aufgrund einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit und Schadensersatzansprüche aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist, z.B. hat der Anbieter dem Kunden die Sache frei von Sach- und Rechtsmängeln zu übergeben und das Eigentum an ihr zu verschaffen. Von dem Haftungsausschluss ebenfalls ausgenommen ist die Haftung für Schäden, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung des Anbieters, seiner gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Vorschriften des Produkthaftungsgesetzes (ProdHaftG) bleiben unberührt. Abtretungs- und Verpfändungsverbot Die Abtretung oder Verpfändung von dem Kunden gegenüber dem Anbieter zu-

stehenden Ansprüchen oder Rechten ist ohne Zustimmung des Anbieters ausgeschlossen, sofern der Kunde nicht ein berechtigtes Interesse an der Abtretung oder Verpfändung nachweist. § 12 Aufrechnung Ein Aufrechnungsrecht des Kunden besteht nur, wenn seine zur Aufrechnung gestellte Forderung rechtskräftig festgestellt wurde oder unbestritten ist. § 13 Rechtswahl & Gerichtsstand (1) Auf die vertraglichen Beziehungen zwischen dem Anbieter und dem Kunden findet das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland Anwendung. Von dieser Rechtswahl ausgenommen sind die zwingenden Verbraucherschutzvorschriften des Landes, in dem der Kunde seinen gewöhnlichen Aufenthalt hat. Die Anwendung des UN-Kaufrechts ist ausgeschlossen. (2) Gerichtsstand für alle Streitigkeiten aus dem Vertragsverhältnis zwischen dem Kunden und dem Anbieter ist der Sitz des Anbieters, sofern es sich bei dem Kunden um einen Kaufmann, eine juristische Person des öffentlichen Rechts oder ein öffentlich-rechtliches Sondervermögen handelt. § 14 Salvatorische Klausel Sollte eine Bestimmung dieser Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen unwirksam sein, wird davon die Wirksamkeit der übrigen Bestimmungen nicht berührt.
