Walnut Folk Art Carving of Abraham Lincoln

Circa Late 19th / Early 20th Century: Good things come in small packages, and this petite 4.5" tall carving of Abe Lincoln accentuates that classic maxim. This highly detailed Lincoln bust is made of a single block off walnut and retains a dry untouched original surface. Note that Honest Abe's nose is shiny and smooth from being handled which is exactly as it should be on a carving of this age. The skillful anonymous carver obviously spent a lot of time on the hair and ears and also captured Lincoln's bow tie, shirt, buttoned vest, and collared suit jacket, which, left open, even has buttons and buttonholes. This is a striking example of antique patriotic americana made to celebrate the memory of one of our greatest leaders.
