A unique 19th Century highly decorative polychrome hand-carved Indian wooden toy-like mobile. The mobile features a central hand-carved figure painted in vibrant pastel colours.  

On either side of the figure are two oblong two-tone circular blocks connected by a thick curved wire. These block either side are there to both help balance and support the detachable framework as well as maintain a rocking movement when desired within a full 360 degree turning motion - both the top and base are separate.   


The figure is raised upon a carved turned wooden column with a circular base, finished with decorative repetitive paintwork throughout again in the same medium as the paintwork on the figurine.
