Fabulous Old Folk Art Rooster

Regular price $125.00

I really love the handling of the wattle on this guy, with just a thin painted black line distinguishing it from the red of his face, itself painted like a mask with cutout for his eye and brow! Great red comb and yellow beak and polka dotted legs too, with an old repaired split to one foot and a bit of loss to the other, but who cares? To me he seems a bit cranky and a bit awkward and possessive of a bit of an attitude but with a very kind and completely endearing soul!

12" t x 11" w x 2" d.  Repaired split to front foot and heel loss to the other as noted, but very sturdy on his base and completely stable. Nice aging to the old paint and with a really great presence; 1920s-40s I would guess.
