Vintage Wood Carving MAN w UMBRELLA 5" Carved Figure

Up for bid is a wonderful carved wood figure. It is a man standing and holding a red umbrella on his shoulder. One hand is held behind his back He has wonderful detail on his beard and face! The piece is not marked and maker remains unknown. There is some white adhesive residue on bottom. I think one can also see some faint pencil markings when one looks closely. I do know the shape of base resembles that seen in Anri figures, with corners cut off forming 8 sided block. Still, I have been unable to confirm so any information from knowledgeable viewers would be most welcome! Piece measures approx 5" high. Condition: It is without chips, cracks, nicks or dings. There are no splits or repairs. There is some green paint smeared on back of base but this would be from when piece was made. Overall patina is quite nice!

Piece has great character and detail! Easy to enjoy and should be a nice addition for collectors of vintage carved figures. (I purchased it from an estate sale a couple weeks ago. The owners appeared well traveled and collected numerous items that appeared to be from mid 20th century or earlier.)

We do have another similar figure listed separately. (We will combine both for "actual" shipping cost - just please wait for revised invoice after auction ends.)
