The labeled front of his pedestal says "Qianlong",while the base-mark reads "Made during the Tongzhi Reign of the Great Qing Dynasty". So this personage would fit into the 'Manchu" category.
I've never seen one of these images that looked exactly like this one. You can see from the base that it was a lamp base at one time, so may have been lighting up someone's life for the last 30-40 years. Probably manufactured in the 3rd quarter of the 20th century, I'd think.
Don't pick it up bare-handed until you get all of the brown muck washed off using a non-chlorine spray cleaner such as those with hydrogen peroxide bases.
