What does this mean?

Hello Ericka,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, knot density and the material, I concluded that this is a Hand Carved Marble Small Bust with "Pierrot" Inscription. The piece depicts a person with a late medieval dress and generally the same style is followed in the statuette. However, the writing, decorative symbols and composition overall seems a lot more contemporary. The piece dates back to the period from 1940 to 1970. The piece is in fair condition with various signs of use and age, corners are mostly damaged.

Entirely hand carved.

Dimensions: 5 Inches by 5.5 Inches

Condition: The piece is in fair condition with various signs of use and age, corners are mostly damaged.

Provenance: Unknown.

50-100$.

Please don’t hesitate to reach us again for more online appraisals on your precious items, thank you for choosing Mearto.
