Praying figurine
« on: August 19, 2015, 07:17:30 AM »
I took this figure to the Antiques Roadshow, i forgot what he said about it but he valued it at 30-40. Looks 19th century to me. I haven't got a photo of the base as it's buried somewhere in my collection, it would take me a year to find it. It's not marked at all, and i think it's hand moulded rather than slip cast.

No marks at all TC, that's a shame. Maybe Keith or Stephen can help...
Cheers!

I remember posting it on Asian Art forum several years ago but nobody knew anything about it, although one person did email me as they wanted to buy it.  ;D

Is it flat backed or shaped all round?
Cheers!

It's like that all the way around.
