Brass Indian Statues

mrburnsJune 21, 2012

Hello there. My first post. I collect antique and vintage tools and in my hunts I buy anything else that looks cool.

Like these statues of Indian gods. I bought the two of them for $5 at an estate sale a few years ago and I want to sell them now so I have more money for tools.

1. Any idea what they're worth? I thought they might be cheap items from a Bombay of India store but after looking on the internet yesterday, I found similiar items that go for three figures!

2. How does one post more than one photo in a message?

The elephant headed figure reminds me of the Hindu God, Ganesh.

Correct. Elephant head is Ganesh, other one is Krishna.
