THIS is possibly the most  magnificent

 and intricately detailed

MING  DYNASTY

BUDDHA  BRONZE,

beautiful verdigris,

for sale anywhere in the entire world. 

 It was a personal  treasure of  

His Royal Majesty King Farouk of Egypt,

The King with an Unlimited

Expense Account. 

note: ( I held the camera at an angle and caused one photo to

be several degrees from vertical.   We guarantee this Bronze stands

correctly).

*

We offer this extraordinary fine

bronze for discriminating buyer/

investors who demand "THE BEST

AND THE UTMOST VALUE"

for their investment dollars.

This bronze deserves close scrutiny!

We present it as an important top quality

ancient rare sculpture,

created by a highly skilled artisan,

centuries ago,

worthy of a significant investment

and museum worthy.

This rare

bronze Buddha statue with

4 heads has

14 arms holding weapons and symbols

of power, plus 2 in prayer position, hand

pressed together, and 2 more holding

a meditation stone.

It is signed with the

MARKS OF THE CHINESE MING

DYNASTY PERIOD,

according to the appraisals

at the sale of the Farouk

collections in 1954.

  .....,

Please examine the marks.

Printed Sale Materials, given to auction buyers have

since been lost, so will not be included with the bronze.

MEASUREMENTS:

15  1/2"  Tall    9"  Wide    6  1/2"  Front to Back

Weight:   Approx. 16 lbs.

THIS RARE STATUE HAS HAD AN INTERESTING HISTORY

continuing even after it was confiscated

from King Farouk's palace

....

The following details of its more recent history may be

more than you care to read about, or know, but are

included IF there is a buyer interested in this:

THE MILITARY COUP WHICH TOOK CONTROL OF

THE GOVERNMENT, CONFISCATED THE HUGE HOARD

OF TREASURES IN KING FAROUK'S

SEVERAL PALACES,  AND REMOVED THEM TO THE

CAIRO MUSEUMS.

LATER THE POLITICAL POWERS DECIDED TO SELL THESE

WONDERFUL TREASURES.

(because their government treasury WAS SERIOUSLY SHORT OF

MONEY). 

AS MANY OF COLLECTORS KNOW,

THEY RETAINED THE SERVICES OF SOTHEBY'S  TO

CATALOG AND CONDUCT THE SALE IN 1954. 

NEWS REPORTERS DESCRIBED IT AS

" THE SALE OF THE CENTURY "

 AN AMERICAN OIL TYCOON, IN EGYPT, LOST HIS

OIL BUSINESS TO THE NEW GOVERNMENT,   WHICH NOT

ONLY CONFISCATED

HIS OIL EMPIRE,  BUT ''FROZE' HIS BANK ACCOUNTS IN THE

EGYPTIAN BANKS.  HOWEVER HE WAS ALLOWED TO WRITE CHECKS

ON HIS

ACCOUNTS FOR PURCHASES IN EGYPT.

John Mendenhalhl bought a vast quantity of Farouk's 

Palace Treasures,  from the

Museums.....and arranged for them to be shipped to NYC,  where he placed them

in a warehouse.    About 20 years later,   Mendenhahl died and his heir placed

the FAROUK ITEMS UP FOR SALE.

We purchased some of the treasures, and

sold them

to dealer/collectors from remote countries

and distant states...and now almost 4

decades later, some of the items have been

consigned by the heirs of those early buyers,

.....so we are sellers of these wonderful rare treasures,

once again.

                         *free shipping to any U.S zip code locations.

International buyers, if eBay does not automatically show you your shipping cost

please email us your exact location, before purchase so we can obtain an accurate shipping cost for you.  We will ship to international locations which allow for our *full value shipping insurance, and which will provide full tracking service for us.

We will have this fine bronze wrapped

and packed *professionally by UPS CERTIFIED

PACKERS.

We have retained an attorney and bank official who can

assist with escrow or other details at time of closing,

if any such help seems necessary.

* PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS

OR COMMENTS.  WE VALUE  eMAILS FROM

VIEWERS OF OUR LISTINGS.
