Century Folk Art Carved Man is his tattered wool coat. Measuring 13 ¾ tall this hand carved figure depicts a bearded, bald head Blackman. This is not a puppet as there have never been any attached strings. Originally a rod was attached to the back of his neck and you could than make the doll dance. As you look at the photographs you can see that there are two, very old shrinkage cracks to the face and much of the applied hair is worn or missing.There are no other problems or restorations to this American Folk Art Carved Figure and the surface is original. On the front of the wood body is a piece of untanned leather. We list quality antiques, art & collectibles every day and you never know what you might find listed without any reserve!
