17th Century Chinese Tibetan Bronze Buddha Professional Appraisal & Certificate
Chinese bronze statue of the seated Buddha; the figure is depicted seated on a lotus base holding a sacred object and with the index finger of the left hand raised. From the photographs this would appear to have had either a lacquer or painted finish originally which is more characteristic of Tibetan/Chinese wares. The above figures are based on the piece being 17th century. Marcel Gibrat (Pictured working on a Greek Kylyx in the 1970s), my grandfather, was a Restorer for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan and later owned a Madison Avenue Restoration Studio and Art Gallery one block from the Guggenheim Museum. From the 1960s to 1990s. Marcel was undoubtedly a genius and was, as far as I know, the only Restorer for the Met without a PhD. In fact he had a sixth grade education. He was also a talented painter. Im Max Lewin the curator of what remains of Marcels extensive art collection, comprising ancient, tribal, Asian and European art. I worked with Marcel summers and in college. Marcel was an unquestioned expert in antiquities and all items in the collection from the ancient world are guaranteed to be authentic. Marcel also had a particular affinity for African tribal art, and while dating such items is problematic, he absolutely had impeccable taste. Some of his opinions on provenance of tribal items have been challenged. There are also Asian items of various quality, and many fine and genuine items from primitive cultures including relatively contemporary (a few hundred years old) and both neolithic and upper paleolithic items. Many of the items have archaeological markings. The item “17TH CENTURY CHINESE TIBETAN BRONZE BUDDHA PROFESSIONAL APPRAISAL & CERTIFICATE” is in sale since Sunday, April 19, 2020.
