Here is a exceptional character carving by Gerald Hannah of Vermont. 12" tall no damage.
Gerald “Pat” Hannah became interested in woodcarving in the 1920's and was influenced by the many French Canadian and Swedish woodcarvers from the Montreal area where he grew up. He started carving in the 1930s and made it into a career until his death in 1967. He went by the nickname Pat because he was born on St. Patrick's Day.

Economic times were tough and what started out as a hobby progressed to part time and then to a full time occupation. His market at that time was gift shops and retail outlets many of them in the USA so he moved the family to Vermont in 1948. In the late 50’s he started signing his carvings “By Hannah.”
