This wonderful piece of Chinese culture was attached to a prize piece of furniture in a home or temple long ago. I purchased this and a number of other items from Gumps many years ago when they began offering Asian antiques. This one features a warrior on his horse.
It is nearly 5 inches tall and a bit under 3 and a half inches wide.
The bottom is uneven from where it was attached to whatever it had been affixed. All considered, it is in Good to Very Good Condition, with no breaks or losses. The overall condition is actually somewhat better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
Provenance: Gumps (San Francisco).
Item ID: 2043
