Ecclesiastical folk art puppet 19th C.
A charming 19th C. carved wood male figure in original outfit.
He looks to be ecclesiastical to me by the outfit.
Naively hand made from pine with remnants of original polychrome paint on the face. He is missing and arm and his clothes are tatty but all there, including his hat! He’s a wonderful piece of folk art and perfect for the curio cabinet. I have him displayed in a plant pot at home.
He stands 40cm tall.
