You're bidding on an antique cast statue - nice size at 17 1/2" tall, 6 1/2" base diameter and a solid 7 lbs - Appears to be cast white metal construction with a nice, natural sort of pewtery patina. Figure appears to depict an earlier period Scottish Guardsman - tartan kilt with a dagger at the waist, a sort of glengarry cap and holding a pike axe with a banner on it. Very nice detailed casting. I'm guessing he might be a clock-topper type statue that were often used to decorate 19th Century mantle clocks.
Note a couple of condition issues - mainly that the point of the pike is broken off and missing, and there also appears to be a ding with some damage on the insignia of his cap. Also some mild pitting & scuff to the painted surface of the base. SEE PHOTOS. Overall decent for age and type, though, and appears all original.
Please review photos carefully to make your own determination of condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to bidding - thanks for looking!
