I know this is a conspiracy site but there is no conspiracy here.I thought this would be the best area to get responses,but if it's in the wrong
category I guess a Mod will move it.
I have four dragon figurines that I purchased some time ago and I can't seem to date them or find a country of origin.I was hoping that the dragon
lovers here might be able to help.
The dragons are approximately 3" tall and 7" long,tip to tip.All of them have the same look,yet all have their own individuality.Some have a bigger
ball in the mouth,longer tail etc.
They appear to be bronze.All have what appear to be earrings.
After a lot of looking around I could only find one example that is relatively close to what I have.
I doubt that mine date to the Tang Dynasty but this is the closest match I could find.Scroll down to the red dragon on the left of the page.
I have no provenance for these pieces.I was told they came from an estate sale and the gentleman had brought them from Thailand.I originally bought
one,then the second came up for sale.Just this year I went back to the same shop and found the other two tucked away in a corner.
All four are from the same previous owner.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Edited to add information.
