C1870 Parian Figure of a Street Vendor, Rat Catcher, Mouse Salesman


This boy is a mystery to me so far. he is clearly a street vendor, but is he selling mice from a cage, do the mice dance above a barrel organ, or is he a rat catcher? he has a box strapped to him, upon which sit a pair of rodents. The boy has a coin in his open hand, so, whatever his calling, the commercial aspects look good.27.5 cm tall.
