A vintage (probably Art Deco in period and probably religious in subject) deskweight in the form of a mounted figure on onyx plinth.
The figure was believed originally to have been gilded but this has now mostly worn away, with the underlying material probably bronze or brass (or even spelter). The upper part of the deskweight appears to have been reglued at some stage and we believe it to be in the wrong place. There is a natural fissure in the onyx behind the upper part. Other than this, the figure is structurally sound but would probably benefit from expert cleaning.
The figure stands approximately 4in high and the base measures approximately 2.875in by about 2.375in at its longest and widest. Weighs just over 150g.
