This fascinating piece is possibly a ship's figurehead. The carving of this figure, who appears to be a naval officer or admiral rank, is skilfully subtle as he looks to his right as though watching over his crew. Wearing a green and yellow/gold uniform of 18th or early 19th-century style, the figure has two red flags draped behind him, giving clues about his nationality- there appears to be a prominent amount of red polychrome on both. A highly compelling and somewhat mysterious object.
