Who and what is this chap?

Who and what is this chap?

by 3 years ago


This chap has been hanging around for about 15 years. Sometimes in a garden other times hiding in cupboards or boxes. My father-in-law bought him from a Chinese restaurant proprietor in Melbourne 25 years ago. Any info would be much appreciated.

Looks to be a resin casting from the photos.....Chinese figure of a sage or scholar. Best regards Lisa

Lisa runs her own art and antiques business, and you may also recognise her from the BBC Antiques Roadshow in the UK. I told you sometimes our experts make surprise visits into the community.. :)
