I , too, purchased mine at the Surawongsee Gallery at the Oriental Hotel back in 1984/1985.

I know the Asians are experts at "antiquing" art but the worn appearance of these items sure begs to differ. If they are "modern" they sure have done an excellent job!

I also have a Samut Khoi (2nd photo) bought from the same gallery but have no way to authenticate the time period. On both, however, I will say that the gold leaf paint has no wear to it so it does make me wonder about the age of both.
