Early Stylized Blacksmith-Whitesmith-Made Folk Art Iron .....SALE PENDING
Northeast America, ca. 1840. Sculptural. Smithed from iron retaining a terrific dry pitted surface. A knowledgeable collector emailed me (thank you!) that these figures were placed in barns in parts of Pennsylvania, particularly around Lancaster, in hopes that any disease would enter these figures instead of the real animals. About 5 3/4 long x 3 (to the top of the horns). Robust in hand with strong character. Note the subtle representation of genitalia. Rare in iron.
