VINTAGE WWII USA Victory Garden FOLK ART Uncle Sam 21
- Source: eBay
Offering a wonderful VINTAGE WWII VICTORY GARDEN 21" WOODEN FOLK ART UNCLE SAM . These 3/4" thick solid wood cut-outs were sold to the American public in "paint-it-yourself" kits, and were used to indicate a Victory Garden when rationing was underway during the Second World War. He's 21" tall, made of solid wood, painted in red, white and blue with black outlining. Depicts Uncle Sam carrying armloads of military vehicles, battleships and planes. Marks to the back are from the original wooden stake used to plant him in the ground. Stake is no longer present.CONDITION~~Wood is generally intact, but t is a clean break to the toe of his left foot, which has a nail or small rod holding it together. Paint is nice and crazed with aged coloring. WONDERFUL wall-hanging potential! Be sure to check out my other auctions this week; I'm currently listing a US MARINE and US ARMY SOLDIER from the same genre. Combined shipping is available for multiple wins. Thank you.
