closer picture

Thank you Peter, would you like me to post a closer photo of the figurine?

Usually, what is needed is a picture of the bottom, and the side for viewing age and manufacturing method, respectively.
But in this case, due to the somewhat special shape of the face, that might be interesting too. The color of the clay, if the face is unglazed may provide a hint too.

This could be a Dehua or Shiwan figurine.
The pictures are much too small to see anything in detail, but the shape of the face makes me think it was probably new when it was purchased, in the 60s.
