Old Carved, Jointed Folk Art Man Stabbed in Leg in Coffin Box

Regular price $135.00

No rising phallus on this little coffin man, but he does have a nail piercing through one leg and little red spot for the exit wound! Quite a sweet disposition nonetheless, with a smile on his funny little face, wide triangular nose that makes him look a bit like a scarecrow, and flat hat that makes him look a bit like a scholar! His arms, attached by wire at the shoulders, move up and down (one is a bit tight so I did not push it) and he stands up on his own, then fits very snugly back into his nicely constructed old slide top box. 

Box measures 4 13/16" l x 1 3/4" w x 1 5/16" t. All in very good condition. Early 20th c I would think.
