This is a great piece of old Black Americana.
I am unsure, but it may depict a black African man.
The head and legs appear to be made of painted bisque or pottery, I am somewhat unsure on this.
I am unsure on the torso as I can't get in to see it, but believe it is also bisque.
He is attached to a wire that is hung from carved wood.
Doll/Puppet measures approx. 7" tall.
Hanging from top of wood handle, piece measures approx. 22" long.
He has a swivel head and very ethnic features.
I believe his right foot has been repaired or reglued, see pics.
A wonderful piece!
