As i stand naked in front of you, you see me for who i am, I stand proud as this is my true form.

Description

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”

Origin: European

Period: 19th Century

Material: Walnut

Item Condition

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

After searching antique dealer sites for several months with no success in an effort to find a special centre piece/ talking point antique for my new business reception area, following a tip from a friend I checked out “The House of Antiques” and after talking to Harry who I found to be not only very knowledgeable but extremely helpful, they sourced me the most incredible Scratch Built boat that I have ever seen and one that has proven to be a real talking point with all our guests who clearly love it just as much as I do, its truly amazing.

I would definitely recommend The House of Antiques to anyone who is searching for that special something because your bound to find it there. I did.
