Consigned Antique Chinese Folk Art Sculpture Buddha

Item #: CF84-0
Dimensions (inches): 13H x 8.25W x 7.50D
Comment: A charming Antique Chinese Folk Art Sculpture of Buddha dating to 1900 from Shanxi Province that has been hand-carved from a tree trunk and features the Buddhist Wanzi symbol on the chest of the seated and meditating figure of Buddha.
Origin: Jincheng City, China
Date: 1900
Material: ELM
Elm is one of the most commonly used woods in China due to its resistance to decay, attractive grains, and the ease with which it can be carved and used for a variety of purposes. Typically, Chinese elm blends a yellowish brown sapwood with a much bolder heartwood, so the pieces tend to contain a great deal of contrast, but elm from southern regions can be darker in color and are a bit harder. There are several sub-categories of elm found throughout China, but they are all easy to work with and were used by both wealthy people and middle class people. @Condition: GOOD
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.
Item Specifics: Shows normal wear and miscellaneous nicks and dings due to age and use. There is a repaired crack running through the center.
