The Effeminate Form
As i stand naked in front of you, you see me for who i am, I stand proud as this is my true form.
We are proud to offer a unique and highly decorative 19th Century hand carved walnut figure of an effeminacy male form. Unusual in its figurative posture and detail. This includes the figure standing in a side on pose with flirtatious gesture, a loosely draped over shoulder silk sheet, female form breasts and overly masculine facial details. This item is heavily patinated due to its age. This figure may have at some point in its lifetime have been part for a larger wall carving. This item is untouched in form and would make an amazing addition to any serious curiosity cabinet collection, or even as a stand-alone piece of sculpture art, one thing is for sure, that it will make a great conversational artifact.
Size in inches: H 11” x W 6” x D 5”
Period: 19th Century
This item is completely solid in structure and form, an aged patina across all its surface has taken place. Aged repair to the feet is also present but finished respectfully to the carved form. The reverse has an old hanging hole, which has been filled many years ago. This leads us to assume this item could have originally been part of a larger wall carving. There are light scuffs and aged marks as you would expect from an item that’s over 100 years old. Close up photos have been supplied to illustrate these points so please observe carefully and propose questions to us if needed.

What Our Customers Say
The House of Antiques is my first choice for finding object d’ art or rare and unusual curiosities. They were able to provide items which I am using in the feature films King Lear and Memoria Draco. Prices were very reasonable, beating other companies and delivery was fast. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.
The House of Antiques will continue to be the first company that my film company, AJF, consults for objects that are rare and difficult to find.
