Object History


Object Literature

It is possible that this was crafted to represent charity, in an ecclesiastical setting for example, although it could equally have been a shop display item and it appears to be unmarked.

Quite possibly unique and a perfect way to display business cards or the like.

Object Condition

The hand and the plinth has some expected wear to the finish but there are no losses repairs or breakages aside from one area of loss to the index finger as photographed.
