An excellent rare survivor from the 18th century fairgrounds. This naive and crudely made wooden early folk art fairground character has a passing resemblance to one of the 18th century King Georges of  England (I, II, III) it has some artist licence so its for you to decide which. A lovely collectors piece or for home decor in the folk art taste perhaps.

Condition commensurate with age. This piece is said to be taken from a much larger fairground panel and reassenbled at a later date. In good solid condition and the colours are still in reasonable condition considering its age.
