Antique, European Carved figurine. Boy holding a dog. Made circa 1850's. Possibly English or French.
Figure measures approx 2 1/4 inches tall. THe wooden base adds a little over 1 1/2 inches to the height.
Small figurine is a wonderful view of a Victorian child. His clothes are marvellous: from the wide hat with bows and pompoms; sailor suit with wide collar falling over the back of his shoulders and tied in the front; wonderful shoes with bows. The child's features in fine detail from his face, hair and hand in his pocket - how typical of a little boy is that? Squeezed tightly under his arm is a little dog. Utterly charming.
The figure stands on a shaped wooden base.
Very good condition.
