Please Read Up for Sale is this Wonderful Treasure, One of a Kind, Extremely Rare, Antique RARE Black Americana Folk Art Wooden Hand Painted Figurine. This Extremely Rare Piece of Respected Black Americana History.
Came from an Estate Find Years Ago. This Hand Painted and Hand Crafted Piece is Over a Hundred Years Old. Just the Paint, and Patina would Qualify that. It Represents a Funner Time of History, and by NO Means is it a Racial Representation, and Never Be Considered So. IT IS A PIECE OF ART, and Should be Displayed with Pride.
Yes the Character is a Little Not to Scale, but was Made in the Era where Black History, as well as Any other Race was a Bit Cartoon-ish. The Gentleman is Well Dressed, and Could have Possibly been a Servant, or a Wealthy Land Owner. Has Crackling in the Paint, with Scuffs, and Chips. It has a Piece of Steel Mounted to the Base, as it was used as a Paperweight.
And Measures 12" H, and 6" W, 1/4 wide. That Told me I had a Valuable Piece. They started calling around to other Appraisers, and it was the Talk of The Hour.
I'm Glad I Didn't sell it That Day. The Price mat Seem a Little High, But I'm sure it has a Much Greater Value. Thanks for Reading, and Good Luck! Thank you very much and enjoy.
