Vintage Painted Folk Art Carving of Colonial Era Figure

Regular price $55.00

I believe the hat and outfit on this carved and painted fellow is Colonial era American, and perhaps he is meant to be a Revolutionary soldier. With hands in his pockets and rather relaxed sort of disposition though, he looks to me poised perhaps for other things. I especially love his large, sort of lumpy nose and partially open red painted mouth, and also the sideward cast of his brown eyes, as if keeping an eye on something, or someone, coming near!

7 3/8" t x 2 1/2" w x 1 5/8" d and in very good condition; I might think 1940s or so?
