a fabulous antique hand carved whimsy!

This "Whimsy" or "Whimsy Stick" was entirely carved by hand......imagine the time it took. I can visualize Grandpa sitting on the porch after supper carving on this masterpiece.........this.....work of art!

It's primitive yet very nicely carved. It measures nearly 30" in length. It's 1.25" thick. You can see the knife blade markings clearly on some of the pieces. It's dark wood or was stained a dark color. The center cage holds a ball and the ends of the cage have a piece that can be turned...attached to links of a chain and then another smaller cage on each end of the strand, each holding one ball. Every piece of it was well sanded. T are no breaks, no chips, no splinters. This item is guaranteed to be antique, guaranteed to be authentic and at least 100 years old.

This antique folk art masterpiece would look awesome hanging from a deck or patio or as an awesome addition to your collection of antique whimsy sticks!
