Folk Art Caricature Bottle

This item has been sold.

This is a wonderfully whimsical caricature of a red-nosed gentleman dressed in black pin-striped pants, a black vest and red tie.  The carved head is the bottle stopper and includes a high starched collar, red cap with tassel, large ears, prominent chin and that pinkish red nose.  He measures 12 1/2" tall and 4 1/4" in diameter at its widest point.

The body was first turned, then split, hollowed out and reassembled around a glass bottle.

The very effective paint decoration is in black, red and white.

An estimated $25 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
