Male toy figurine, frontal view. A hollow-cast full-lenght male figure in doublet and trunk hose. Its face is slightly crushed and the figurine has a goatee beard without a moustache. The figurine has very thin harms which curve round so that the hands rest on the waist. The pear-shaped breeches are decorated with diagonal panels and vertical hatching to represent paned, slashed or braided textiles and they are gathered just above the knee. An arched plate between the ankles is presumaly the remains of a stand.
1550 AD - 1560 AD
