Wood Relief Folk Carving of USS Constitution Old Ironsides Sailing Ship Frigate


This is a wooden relief carving of a three masted American warship, the most famous of which was Old Ironsides or the USS Constitution. The American flag depicted has stars in a circle, and the number of gunports is about right. The wood looks like pine to me, but I do not know who carved it or when it was done. It measures 9-3/4" x 7-1/8" and has good depth as shown.
