Rare 19thC Indian Alabaster Figure of a European
A rare Indian alabaster figure of a seated European. Height: 4 1/8 in. 19th cent.

The figure is seated cross-legged in the Indian manner, but wears European dress apart from the cap or turban and shoes. He is presumably a merchant. The nose is chipped and the figure was clearly holding something in his right hand, which has now been lost. Such figures reflect Indian curiosity about European dress and manners during the period of the Raj. The details of the frock coat have been carefully noted.
