Dimensions in inches: H 28” x W 9” x D 7”

Age: 18th Century
Origin: Southern European
Condition: Aged

This item show natural wear and aging through obvious use over the years, an item dated over 200-year-old. A worn naturally aged painted surface, with specific wear to the top of the head that has need treated. The clothing is tattered and missing detail with tears and aged weathering. The hair is also lightly attached to the head but is missing one side and does not cover the whole head (this item is likely to have worn a crown or hat of sorts). Missing half a carved finger. With light surface craquelure to the painted areas (face and neck). A very old item (that is in one piece and stable to stand as shown) its very old and the photos aim to show this as best as possible.
