An exceptional folk art whirligig, depicting a soldier in a military uniform.
The soldier is wearing a red coat with a white collar, white pants, black boots and a red and blue cap. The paint is original, with a degree of wear that suggests the whirligig was exposed to the weather for some of its life. Nevertheless, a very striking and appealing piece of folk art. The black base is new. Late 19th or early 20th century.
Dimensions: 25” high x (6¾” x 7¼” base)
