This is a very unique item! It is a traditional Chinese Nodder, or “Nodding Chinaman”. It is a porcelain figure that sits 13 inches tall. It has a movable head, tongue, and hands. The figure is sitting cross legged, wearing a flowered and gilt costume. One of the hands has been repaired. These Chinese nodders reputedly were used to detect earthquake activity in the later 19th century. They were very much a high Victorian piece in their time! A fun addition to any home.
