Antique Wooden Painted Folk Art Whirligig Lumberjack

Circa 1900: This six color polychromatic paint decorated lumberjack whirligig stands 16 5/8" tall including its modern museum stand. We love his black and white painted hat and his blonde hair, including long sideburns, eyebrows, and a thick moustache. His shiny eyes are bits of black glass, and his yellow paddles are dowel constructed. Our handsome and rugged lumberjack's tiny sports disproportionate folksy black shoes coming out of his red striped blue pants. There are two old typical in use makedo repairs: one to the arm and one to the base and the paint on the whirligig is finely crazed.
