This little monkey is just adorable with his pensive expression, his brow is wrinkled and he scratches his head, he sure is thinking deeply about something.
Very nicely carved, he holds a blanket as he sits on a "coopered" barrel.
His condition is good for the age with a couple of chips to his toes and one to the back of the blanket. The latter could just be the piece of horn the sculptor had to work with but I like to note all "faults" as I see them. All in all a darling little piece.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
