Tibetan Antique Furniture

The Upper Sange Monastery began a massive rebuilding project in 2004 & emptied out most of the residential compounds & demolished them. The monks' private altars & shrines were sold as there was no where to store them, & new residences were designed with built-in shrines & Tibetan Buddhist altars. At this time, Baronet purchased the Tibetan furniture we currently have in inventory. The Lower Sange Monastery demolished their Assembly Hall & main temple in 1988 & started rebuilding. We have several items preserved from these destroyed buildings.

The Sange-certified items currently on this web site (& some no longer available here) are now being reproduced & marketed as original items on other web sites as vintage pieces from Nepal.  "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Please be careful when purchasing from the web, as many sellers are not aware that their suppliers are offering knock-offs.

Today's market is flooded with so-called "antique" Tibetan furniture which is, in fact, mass-produced in China & Malaysia.  Consequently, we've asked the monks to authenticate the dates & place of creation & the artist, when known, of these pieces, thus providing the buyer with evidence of the item's provenance. Historical records indicate that furniture was typically not present in Tibetan households & what furniture did exist, was at monasteries.
