AMERICANA FOLK ART Civil War Cadet in Uniform - Wood Carving Statuette / Doll
This is an incredible carved figure from the Civil War. Beautiful primitive carved wood and painted folk art figure of a Civil War Cadet in a Union Uniform. The eyes are inset with small round mirrors, but only one eye is left. There is a small metal band like a repair staple at the bottom of the boy's tunic. If this doll could talk, the story it could tell would be beyond the imagination. Stands 12.5" tall on integrated base instead of "feet". Seam crack in head/cap and base/foot, considerable loss of paint throughout, but all original, unrestored and unrepaired. Truly a one of a kind, museum quality piece.
