Here is a real survivor! A very Folky Wooden Rooster, that has been mounted and framed and is ready to hang. It may have started its life as a Weathervane Pattern or a Barn Decoration, but whatever it has a lovely warm patina, is circa 1890-1900, and has been worthy of saving all these years! What a form, and what a look! 33" x 25".



 

Wooden Barber Pole circa 1890 in original paint and crazed surface. This is an unusual pole in that it is octagonal in shape and this is all it ever was. It measures8.5” x 8.5” x 39.5” tall.

It is primarily done in Tiger Maple and Walnut, and what makes it even more special is that it is in its original varnished surface, has no missing pieces, and no I didn’t forget the Two Tiger Maple Inlaid Horses front and center.
