Vintage Folk Art Wooden Mermaid Sculpture.
A fabulous and really unusual folk art sculpture, formed as a mermaid.
The head and shoulders are carved wood and her tail is a piece of horn which she moulds into beautifully. She is set upon a contemporary base leaning against a rock.
She would have been carved in the 19th Century possibly by a sailor ?
A rare piece of folk art with lovely decorative appeal.
She is approximately 8 inch long x 8 inch high and the plinth measures 12 inch x 7 inch approximately
