Abraham Lincoln Antique Folk Art Carving

Memorial plaque with wonderful details

Circa 1946: Signed “Otto 46,” this beautifully naïve carved wooden plaque measuring 13 ½” tall and 9 ¼” wide commemorates the life of our 16th President and his crowning achievement of breaking our nation’s bonds to human slavery as is evidenced by Honest Abe’s birth and death dates and by the memorial wreath surrounding Lincoln with the chains serving as the wreath’s bottom link. Carved a year after the end of World War II when America was celebrating victory and just beginning its long recovery from a grueling and sacrificial world-wide campaign, this plaque hearkens back to our country’s Civil War and Abraham Lincoln’s 1858 assertion that “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” Note the carving’s wonderfully subtle polychromatic paint scheme, the complicated wreath, the lovely finial, and the three dimensional figure of President Lincoln showing all the typical facial features and his bowtie, button down shirt, vest, and suit coat with its carved lapels. This choice example of patriotic Americana plucked from a Floridian gentleman’s extremely discerning and aggressively acquired Lincoln collection, like all of our wares, carries our 100% satisfaction guaranteed no questions asked policy and will surely put a smile on its new owner’s face.
