I bought these lovely statues from a junk market recently and wondered if anyone could tell me anything about them?
I think they may be Thai and possibly bronze or brass.
They are definitely some sort of metal and you can see the gold colour of the metal where little bits of paint have worn off how do I tell if they are bronze?
The male is 16 inches tall and the female 19 inches (without her wooden base)
I can't find any markings anywhere at all.
They weigh 7kg (15lbs)each, so are very heavy.
I'd really like to know whether they could be bronze, their actual country of origin, who the figures represent and also if they could be worth anything.
