J404 Folk Art hand carved and painted Whale Sculpture – branded on bottom by maker. The brand is in the shape of the state of Delaware and reads: “Burton”. The whale’s body is carved from a solid piece of wood with the tail and side fins being made of painted pieces of cut / shaped leather. Adding to the visible appeal of this piece are the realistic carved eyes and painted screws / nails creating the look of teeth inside the whale’s open mouth. Sculpture is mounted on a wooden stand for display purposes. The stand is both branded, and signed, by the maker: “Matt Burton - Lewes, DE”.
Approximate measurements: 22 ½” long x 3” wide. Overall mounted height is 11 ¼” tall at the tail. The base measures 4” wide x 12” long.
