Nodders have been popular for hundreds of years, dating back to 17th century China. They have come in a myriad number of forms but one of the recurring themes is Asian. Here we see a German nodder, dating to about 1900, that is presented as a Caucasian woman is Asian dress. The same figure was manufactured as an Asian woman in virtually the identical costume, with somewhat different colors. There was an Asian man made in this style as well. This figure is in excellent condition, with no signs of damage, and the mechanism still works. Beautiful face. Delicate fingers and fan intact! Colors are vibrant and there is little wear. It's an excellent example! Measures 6 and 3/4 inches (17cm) tall.
