Today's Find

Yesterday I visited my favorite antique mall hunting for props. While there, I ran across this old carving sitting on the top shelf of a glass case surrounded by religious artifacts. Today I went back to retrieve him.

He is a very old piece most likely from the 1600s (or earlier) and appears to be either a nobleman or tradesman. If anyone has any ideas about this piece, please let me know. Let the research begin...
