Two polychrome painted pine dummy board figures of an Ottoman soldier and an Imperial soldier
18th century

Catalogue Note

In The Dictionary of English Furniture (1990) Ralph Edwards notes that dummy board figures were fashionable in the 17th and 18th century in this country. They were intended as whimsical objects to decorate a room, such as the fireplace when it was unused during the summer months, and to occasionally give the impression that the person depicted was real. Subjects include children, soldiers, animal, men and women.
