Antique Chinese Paper-mache Opera Doll:
About 11 inches tall with hat, this Chinese opera doll is in excellent condition for its age. These were made in the early part of the twentieth century as remembrances for attending Chinese opera as far as I know. This one is all intact, fingers all there, facial paint is almost flawless. There is some rubbing to finish on forehead where hat has been rubbing. Other than that I see no defects. Embroidery and clothing are still vibrant and butterfly wings on back are still intact. The head does come off as is normal with these and is held in place by a long thin brass rod. All in all this is probably a 9 or 10 condition wise. Please study pictures carefully, ask questions and please offer. There is and low starting point. Check out his female counterpart also listed and thanks for looking. Payment is appreciated within 48 hours of sale end. Thanks.
