Description
ABRAHAM LINCOLN HAND-CARVED FOLK ART
A skillfully executed early 20th Century figural whirly wig carving of Abraham Lincoln holding a shield-shaped paddle in each hand painted with the stars and stripes of an American flag. The figure stands 11" high and has been mounted to a later 4" square wooden base. The president's body was carved from one solid piece of wood while the arms were carved separately and attached with screws. The figure is fully painted with a black suit, tan vest, and white shirt. Found in central Pennsylvania, this piece is still covered with years of grime which we would not even think of cleaning. Also the base is slightly water stained. Overall a very good piece of American Folk with good honest wear and much appeal
