Very good condition, see description - 21×7×10 cm

Antique gilt and lacquer wooden buddha statue. Loss and wear commensurate with great age including age cracks to front, bottom, and side. Loss to lacquer and gilt in various areas including the face. Chip to top of crown. The buddha features a time honed patina and wonderful countenance. Back of statue features a carved out space presumably for written incantations, etc. I have not touched it so cannot be sure what is inside.
