Snappy Auctions Payment - Shipping - Returns - About Us Antique Ivory Chinese Doctor Nude Statue Figurine Doll
You are bidding on an exquisite Antique Chinese Doctor's model . We believe the piece dates back to the late 1800's or early 1900's . The doll was used as a model to determine female ailments in ancient china because it was forbidden for a male to examine a female patient.

This statue features intricate carvings and she lies on the original mahogany bench . The woman measures approximately 16" in length and 3.5" high. The bench measures 18" x 3.5" x 6.25" tall. The nude woman has no broken or repaired pieces that we can see but she does have some natural checking in the ivory. It also looks like a piece of the birds wing has a chip in it. The statue has been stored over time on the bench so some of the stain has transferred onto the underside of the woman's body.

The carved bench is in excellent condition given its age and only has a few minor scratches. The head rest is slightly loose.

This is truly a rare find to have an ivory doctors statue of this size . This statue is part of a large ivory collection we will be auctioning off over the next couple of weeks that includes Netsuke's and snuff bottles .
