    Hello again, does anyone have any idea when such wooden figurines were made... Mozart without arms - it seems like someone dropped it on the floor, wooden and gilded... It seems like it could be from the period between 1850-1900, some kind of grand tour souvenir... Any ideas?

    But... The stumps appear to be finished and there isn't any other damage which one would expect.

    The arms could have been separate pieces that have been lost.
