(Set of 4) Wood Amish Family Folk Art Figures - Beaver Creek - Beaman, IA

Here is a set of four wooden Amish figures, which have “BEAVER CREEK, Beaman, Iowa” burnt into the wood on the bottoms of them. These figures date back to the early 1980’s when Beaver Creek was a thriving small-town woodworking business. The business, which started in the late 1970’s, was originally called “Wolf Creek Woodworking” until it encountered a name change. All of the figures are handcrafted from a solid piece of wood and their dull, painted finishes have been buffed to give them an old Folk Art look. The arms on all of the figures are moveable.

The man is 10-1/2” tall x 3-1/2” wide x 2-1/4” front to back. The painter’s signature (Char Rowlison) is written on the bottom. I remember “back when” that this same figure was sitting on the fireplace mantle of the then popular TV sitcom BELVEDERE.

The woman is 9-1/2” tall x 3-1/2” wide x 2” front to back. The painter’s signature (Irene Ballard) is written on the bottom.

The girl is 6-3/4” tall x 2-1/2” wide x 1-1/2” front to back. The painter’s signature, written “Char” only, is on the bottom. Char Rowlison is the full name.

The boy is 7” tall x 2-1/2” wide x 1-1/2” front to back. The painter did not sign this piece.

All of these figures are in excellent condition.

I try and research the items that I sell and learn as much as I can about them but I do not profess to be an expert on anything. I appreciate hearing from other eBayers when they have any additional information about my items that they would like to share with me. I am not offended when someone corrects a mistake I have made; in fact I truly appreciate his or her input. I try and describe my items as if you yourself were holding it in your own hand. I tell about all of the imperfections that I can see so that you are aware of what you are bidding on before you bid. It is not my intention to deliberately deceive anyone and give false information. I try and use lots of pictures so that you can see better what I am selling.
