Pair of Carved and Polychrome Painted Wooden Carnival Stand-up Figures

$1,000.00 USD

These two carnival stand-up figures include a mother and clinging child and a sailor (swabbie).  The mother and child measure 31 1/2" tall, 12" wide and 3" thick.  The sailor is 36" tall, 16" wide and 3" thick.  We found them together, unsigned, but they appear to be by the same artist.  They are each carved from a single piece of pine.

Each is polychrome painted- the mother and child are red, blue, black, yellow, pink and flesh tone and the sailor is red, white, blue, brown, pink and flesh tone.

They are carnival or amusement park decorative pieces and likely date to the first half of the 20th Century.

Condition is very good for both with no losses and no repairs.  Both have areas of abrasion and minor paint loss consistent with use.  The sailor has a tight age crack running through his center, more visible from the back.  See the photos.

An estimated shipping cost of $50 is included in the price.
