Wooden small statue of a chinese ? warrior on horseback
Again I've got a piece that I picked up from an estate sale. This statue (or statuette) appears to be hand-carved. It stands on its base approximately 7.25" tall and measures 5.5" side-to-side and 2.5" front-to-back. It weighs approximately 11.8 ounces. The wood of the statue has an almost orange hue. I'm really asking for this appraisal as much to learn about this thing I picked up as well as to know the value. At first I didn't think it was worth very much at all, but after researching online, I became unsure. I don't want to ask $10 for something that might be worth more, nor do I want to ask a big price for something that may only be worth $10. Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history of this carving. It seems to have been well cared for by whoever owned it as there are no scratches, dings, cracks, broken parts, or repairs.
Estimate: $50 - $100
