Antique carved bust of an oriental boy/man.
The hair appears to be real.
Sourced in France but it clearly has a lot of age, 19th Century.
height 7 inches;
width 4.5 inches;
depth 1.75 inches.
Condition commensurate with age - chips to painted face, chip one one shoulder, head bare on top - nevertheless a hugely characterful item. Shabby chic.
