Wonderful Antique Chinese Opera Puppet
A lovely antique hand puppet depicting a classic character from the Chinese Beijing Opera tradition.
This opera puppet would normally have sticks fitting through it's fists that would allow the arms to be manipulated.
The sticks are missing and are not included.
Overall it is in very good condition though
the hands and shoes are missing.
All clothing, decorations, carving, paint, and hair pieces are original.
It dates to around 1890.
It would make a fabulous display piece inside a plexiglass box or placed on a stand.
