Folky whirligigOrdered. (What this means.)

This is a folky whirligig with two African-American figures turning a crank. It has good paint with some fine crazing and nice design and movement. The people are somewhat whimsical, with blue suits, brown hats, and black boots. The initials A.D. are painted on both sides of the tail. It was probably made about the 1930's or 40's and has been mounted on a newer wood base. The whirligig itself is 24 1/2" long and 16" across the blade. Including the base it is 27" long by 18 1/2" high. One of the men's hats is missing a piece off the back, and there are some small chips on the tail and some tight cracks in the blade. Otherwise it is in very good, used and weathered condition. Inventory Code: CTAK.   Another angle ... A third view ... One side ... The other side ... Closeup of the figures ... Another closeup ...
