    Hi there

    Could anyone help me describe/date/value this figure please? About 6-7" and pretty solid, although there is something rattling around when I shake it!

    Thanks in advance :)

    Is it made of brass? The only "carved" part was done to the original mold this was cast from. If it's not mass produced, it could have been cast from wax - cire perdue, and the wax was hollowed out some, bits of metal can shake around inside.

    What is the material visible on the bottom?
