THIS FOLK ART 'MORNING DOVE' IS GUARANTEED TO BE OLD AND VINTAGE Ca. 1930's OR 40'S AND NOT ANY FORM OF LATER REPRODUCTION

This one-of-a-kind hand carved 'Morning Dove' was acquired in the Sault Ste. Marie region of Ontario, by someone who was kind enough to label the bottom of this carved figure, so that it can have some timely reference of origin, but it is obviously not signed by the maker.

If you note, the mounting bolt and nut used on this particular folk art piece, is a distinct give-away of its true age and authenticity and gives it the credability of being from the 1930' or 40's era. As well, when you closely observe the tight little nooks and crannies over this piece it also gives you the reassurance that it is not a 'new' or a 'faked-old' piece of early 20th century folk art.

As mentioned at the top, the body of this folk art dove consists of two laminated pieces of pine. The lamination line can be seen in the yellow breast photo shown above (7th from the top).

Consider this food for thought... actual authentic quality folk art carvings from the past are quite rare now when you think of it, compared to the abundance of recently made folk art that can be found in shops, marketplaces and auctions just about everywhere.
