Single Ball in Cage Carved Wood Whimsy

Regular price $45.00

I really love the roughness of this carved ball in cage whimsy; nothing fussy or perfect about it. Best is that it is in fact a bit of a failure--there are a couple of splits where the wood of the sides meets the top, with a nail in one corner holding the cage together! (see photos) While it is possible the nail was a later repair, I rather think it was the work of its hard-trying original maker, and for me makes this about the most tender and heartfelt whimsy that I've seen. LOVE.

4 3/4" tall x 1 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" deep.
