This figure has been vetted as authentic with signs of use and age, probably mid 20th century.
This very heavy, dense figure (2 lbs. 10 oz. without the base) is carved of old wood. There are cracks on the left side which are stable. The heavily encrusted patina, a libation with traces of eggshells, has broken off around the base and is still fragile on the chest and the lower sides of the face (see detail below). There is an iron staple on top.
