A detailed Chinese wood carving of a servant or courtier that is holding an offering. The carving of the belt is pierced so that you can see between the robe and the belt.  The details are very good on the robe folds and on the face. The carving is very round and deep.
The figure has traces of gesso and gilding. The base is flat and has some losses. The wood is very lightweight.
There is a very old red and white paper label on the base that reads #27 A.
6 5/8” (16.8 cm) tall x 2 ¾” (7.0 cm) wide x 2 ½” (6.4 cm) deep. Weighs 4.6 oz (130 g)
Only remnants of paint and gesso remains. There is a repaired chip on the tip of one of the long sleeves. There is a crack on the back, in the hair, on the forearm, and several on the base. There is a small loss of wood on the apron.  The wood is very old and has oxidized from many years of exposure.  
A very old sculptural piece to add to a collection or as an accent to a room
