He has well defined hair and facial features, costume edged in gold luster, and the wicker design of the basket is most realistically portrayed. Measurements are 4” (10m ) high and wide and 4 ½” ( 11cm ) deep. No markings found and there is a slight mold separation on bottom coming from right outer corner. …..US$ 165.
