An Antique Folk Art Carving

'Tulip Flower'

with Hand Wrought Iron Hook

From Lancaster County, Pennsylvania




DESCRIPTION

Found locally in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania a handsome 19th century antique piece of treenware.  A wood carving of a Tulip Flower.  It was carved by hand from a solid block of walnut.  The carving measures 5-1/2" high and 4-3/4" across and is 1-3/4".  

Handsome and beautifully shaped the front surface is deeply carved and the top, bottom and sides follow the lines of the carving.  There is a hand wrought spike inserted into the wood to serve as a hook.   When the carving was removed from the wall, the metal plate that held it on the wall stayed behind leaving the bare wood with small hanging hole showing on the back. Also on the reverse, you can see the smooth burnished edge of the iron spike.

Good and heavy this weighs 1-lb  2 ounces.

No damage to the wood, just typical small edge wear as shown n our images.. 

Excellent condition overall! 

Size:  5-1/2" x 4-3/4" x 1-3/4"
