Antique Seated teakwood figurine, Burma

SKU A04035

Seated teakwood figurine, Burma

This decorative female figure is carved from teakwood and has extensive painted decoration.

This kind of figure was usually used a decorative piece (often with a male companion piece) at venues such as theatres or places of social gathering.

It is possible that she is a Burmese Nat, but we have been unable to identify her to date if this is the case.

Old damages, but all adds to the character.

51 cm high x 19 cm wide x 19 cm deep.

Date: circa 1920
