English Woodcarvings in Oak
1720
Three charming English oak wood carvings; One figure seated on horse waving what seems to be his hat,with two standing male characters with sticks and three cornered hats. Date approx early Eighteenth century we estimate.I would call these scratch carved I think, with details lightly applied to the roughed out shapes, and with flat backs. We have other similar pieces that we know came from a public house, and these secular decorative pieces might well have had the same origins.Some old worming showing to the backs,which are fitted with modern ring hangers.The standing figures are just under 30 cm tall, and the figure on horseback is around 41cm. Decorative and pleasing carvings priced for the three together.
condition: Very Good
