Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This is a OOAK Newel Post Turning. He is "The Candlestick Maker" to the collection of Nursery Rhymes: The Butcher,The Baker and The Candlestick Maker. He is holding a candelabra in his hands. All around the bottom are ornate candlestick holders. He is ornately dressed from the tip of his checkerboard designed hat to the tassles dangling from his cloak.
I designed these "turnings" many years ago and have different collections besides Nursery Rhymes, including Medivial, Knights in Armor, many different Santa Clauses, Angels, Grand Masque Ball and Anthropomorphic to name a few. Each one is signed, dated and numbered.
The numbers are recorded when it's completed and this was done for so many devoted collectors. There are 867 completed turnings and spool dolls to this date. This Candlestick Maker is #857. He is 15¼" high x 2¾" wide.
They are painted with acrylic paints, inks and sealed with Clear Acrylic Sealer to protect the painting. I am temporarily sold out of The Butcher and The Baker. These are all originals.
Thanks for stopping by!
