Pair of Small, Whittled Whimsy Chains with Nice Age

Regular price $45.00

I found this little pair of carved chain links together in Vermont, and while I don't always jump on carved whimsy chains these days, I think these are very nice ones, in which one very much feels the hand of the carver, whittling carefully away. The same hand (knife) made both, I believe, and I like them together, with the contrast between two different lengths of links making them feel specific and particular. Pretty easy to imagine the carver sitting in a rocker on the porch in rural Vermont whittling to while away the time.

Short: 3 1/8” l. Longer: 6” l. Both in very good condition, with nice dry wood patinas.
