Lot 0039 Details

  • Title: Very amusing folk art carved expressive face
  • Provenance/Additional Info: This is a branch with a very amusing, expressive face carved into one end.The other end was cut off, the wood hollowed out, and a ball put inside. The end was then replaced carefully, so that only a thin seam shows. When the stick is tilted back and forth, the ball inside rolls with a heavy clicking sound. It's fun to fidget with. Most of the branch has a natural surface, with traces of the bark remaining; the face is painted. It measures 6 1/2" long by 1 7/8"high by 1 3/4" wide and is signed and dated "Fred Bowerman Aug. 8, 1990". The condition is very good, with a couple of small splits in the wood.
