Antique Bronze Buffalo Bell Burma EBB77

$395.00

From Burma, this mid – late 19th century buffalo bell, known as hka-lauk, was cast in bronze with traditional decoration at the base. The bell is trapezoidal in shape and the quality of bronze is high. It is likely that this bell was excavated by a farmer, given that one side is significantly more oxidized than the other with minor abrasions. The bell is hung from a custom built stand.

In Burma, the tradition of blacksmithing has always been an honoured occupation associated with courage, strength and integrity. The Burmese excelled at bronze casting using the lost wax method or cire perdue and their handsome decorated bronze bells have long attracted the interest of visitors to Burma and collectors of Asian antiques.
