Interesting Items - Vintage Collectibles & Folk Art

Manufacturer: Unknown
Old Mythological Female Figure
Possibly Asian Indian


This very unusual and interesting wooden figure is articulated. There are pegs to hold her arms and legs. The top of the head is shaped as a gourd? cap and stem and the back has a metal piece of hardware for hanging.

Size: 38 Inches L x 12 Inches W x 8 Inches D

Condition: Solid with wear from age and possibly the elements. Evidence of old insect depredation, now stabilized. There are several minor age cracks & there are blemishes. Also there is a hole through the side of her body under her arms through to the other side the size of 1 Inch across. Possibly for a rod to hang her on? The figure needs to be handled with care as she is in solid condition - but fragile.

Weight: 4 lbs.

Found in Florida at an Estate Sale.

Shipping and insurance for this item is included in the price. This will include professional packing by UPS as she is delicate and needs extra special handling.

This item was very difficult to photo and is as sharp & clear as I could get it.
