Rare 19th Century Burmese Temple Bronze Bell with Finely Cast Guardian Lions

$4,500

About

Early 19th century finely cast Burmese bronze temple bell surmounted with two guardian lions. This rare temple bronze bell surmounted with two guardian lions is a great testimony of the Burmese mastery of cast bronze in the 19th century. The bell is adorned on its belly with horizontal lines and Burmese inscriptions as well as elegant gadrooned motifs on the top. Its buckle is decorated with two impressive guardian lions, cast with an incredible finesse. The attention to detail is obvious in the execution. This exquisite bronze bell comes from a temple in Mandalay and would be, thanks to the finesse of its details, a delightful decorative accent in any home.
