Great pair of late 19th Century New England folk art carvings depicting a man and a woman in multiple layers of old paint. Both carvings feature free moving arms, distinctively carved faces, ears, hair styles and fingers/hands. The man also features detailed shoes/boots, that include a defined heel, and what appears to be a long waisted suit coat with painted-on buttons and shoulder epaulets over pants with painted-on cuffs. Lady carving depicts her in a long period-style dress with distinctively tapered waist, carved sleeve cuffs and she is further accented by painted-on buttons on her bust, along with a painted-on apron. These could possibly have been made originally as a wedding gift. Each carving measures 11 1/2” tall x 3 1/2” wide at shoulders. The base of the man is 3” diameter and base of lady is 2 3/4” diameter.
