Old Red Painted Folk Art Pig Cutting Board

Regular price $110.00

Really a good one, which feels to me as much like a butcher shop sign as a folk art cutting board made at home, though I believe the latter. Great smiling face and yellow eyelashes, and great old red painted body, which curiously shows darker on the bottom 3/4 of the pig than the top, I presume product of where it was hung or stored, and which I think is all to the good as if too highlight the belly! (The contrast is a bit more pronounced ion photos than in hand; I really didn't notice it until I put it under lights to shoot.) C. 1930s or so, I believe, and wired on the back for hanging.

11 t x 18” long measured on the square. Very good condition.
