Hand carved vintage/antique one-of-a kind wooden plaque with amazing depth and skillful craftsmanship!

Features a man wearing a fishing hat with feather, smoking an long stemmed pipe with jutting eyes, mustache, side burns, and eyebrows. He wears a double buttoned coat with defined collar and sloping shoulder line.

The background is deeply chiseled with a darker stained appearance.

I love how you can clearly see the carved grooves of the background, yet the texture is soft with a polished attribute.

The man’s features are defined and precise. Lines are spaced evenly and carved with meticulous technique. In fact, the unique and charming details captured inside this OOAK piece is how I was instantly attached to this wooden wall hanging!

I’ve looked very closely at this piece and find it to be in good to very good condition.

Carving has definition. Sections may have been stained, but there appears to be no polish or glossy coating applied to the wood. The front side is mostly smooth, while the sides and back remain unfinished with a rough texture.

Very fine cracks on the natural grain line are visible on man’s hat (approximately 8 total that are no longer than 1/2”) and one on his left shoulder (about 1” long). These splits may have occurred during the making of this piece or in post production (refer to close up picture which focuses around this area).

There are no obvious indents, blemishes, water damage, mold, wood chips, or otherwise noted damage.

The bottom left side corner has an intentional 45° blunt cut to the backside of the wood. This feature is not visible to the front side, but makes each angle of this wall hanging interesting and filled with character.

There is no identifying maker’s mark visible.
Unsure of the precise date this piece was created.

The back includes old hardware with sturdy wire and is ready to be hung in any room in your home!

Measures approximately 11” (27.9 cm) x 1” (2.54 cm) x 7 1/2” (19 cm)

I will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have regarding this charming piece of folk art!
