A Collection of 4 x Antique Burmese bronze figure making offerings, 18th/19th Century.
A lovely set of figures making an offerings to Buddha, examples of Burmese Shan (Tai-Yai) miniature art. Each piece would originally have formed part of a small set depicting an important scene in the life and development of the Buddha.
The figures are in bronze and mounted on similar sized wooden bases. Generally very good condition, although one figures has a glued repair at the base level. A beautiful and unique grouping.

Dimensions: Each piece approximately 18cm high (including base). Base 5.5cm square. Figures are approximately 5.5cm - 6.5cm high.
