Antique Indonesian Hand-carved and painted wood dancing doll unique and rare
This is a Indonesian 1940-50 hand-carved and hand-paintedClassical Dancer doll - 430 gram ( 15 ounce), 43 cm ( 19.5 in ) tallfrom skirt hem to top of head. It has a beautiful finish, is in perfect condition with no chips, being kept well over the years and rare to find. It comes from a find of some dolls and other pieces on a trip to Indonesia some 40 years ago. The skirt is of batik cotton of a classical design and tastefully made, with a small rip hole in the fabric from age. I put the support stick in an empty wine bottle and have these on my living room or office shelves. Exquisite classical art of SE Asia.
