NOTES: I'm not sure whether or not this is a Tibetan Buddhist or Indian Hindu Temple Toy. I do know it's an Antique Temple Toy and it's in wonderful condition. I've taken many pictures to give you the best possible visual perspective added to an accurate description of this amazing Antique Temple Toy. I can take more pictures if you desire and I'd be delighted to send them to you upon request. If you require more pictures, or have questions about any aspect of this delightful Tibetan Buddhist or Indian Hindu Temple Toy, please let me know and I'll be happy to provide them for you directly to your email address, or you may call me directly to chat.Further: In the next few weeks I'm going to be listing a considerable number of my Grandmother's Art Treasures of Brass, Bronze, Copper and other metals as well as her glass and china collection including; Crystal Bud Vase Collection, Porcelain Shoe Collection, some marked and some are not marked, a huge number of hard to find and unique glassware items like the exquisite art glass pieces I sold not long ago. So, if you are into collecting the most amazing pieces of glass and antique dishes that you have ever seen, this is indeed a most amazing collection and you should be prepared to be extraordinarily blessed if you acquire one of these beautiful items. There's a few fun things in there as well.
In my collection I have heavy wheel-cut and acid etched crystal, lamps and shades, hand painted glass tumblers, glass shoes, boots and slippers from all over the world as well as an amazing collection of exquisite plates and glasses that will rival anything you have ever seen. I've displayed or kept all of these items in storage since Grandmother died but then thought that they would serve the world better if they were in the hands of avid and elite collectors. Collectors like my Grandmother, who loved these splendid pieces and displayed them proudly. I've researched my families items rather carefully so when I list something as an original, it will be an original. I derived my information from images on the web and many of the excellent reference books, available on Amazon, as my starting place. Read my feedback and as you have my assurance that you'll continue to be thrilled with your purchases.
Notes: My excellent feedback, over many years, speaks for itself and I know you will not be disappointed. I only sell the highest quality items and by describing the item accurately I guarantee these are what I say they are. I am in the process of auctioning my Grandmothers extensive glass and china collection as well as an ongoing collection of professional camera and sound equipment, Nikon, Hasselblad, Leica cameras, and other photography equipment in current auctions. Please view my other listings throughout March if you are interested in amazing glass pieces as well as Nikon and vintage Hasselblad cameras and hundreds of professional accessories in outstanding condition. Please look at my feedback to assure yourself of obtaining the very best at great prices.
