Catalogue Description:

This is probably a servant figurine, although this type is also referred to as a paddle doll. Condition: Both arms broken off below armpits, and the edges are chipped off at the head and bottom. A hole on the right side near the armpit has an ancient repair with tan plaster. Some pitting on the surface.
