Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Carving

Carving of a dolphin (mahi-mahi) on a plaque with a rope border.  Signed by Charles Nelson. Found in Florida.  Probably dates to early 20th century although it could be earlier.  Minor inpainting to background.  We made multiple repairs to broken tail and fins and replaced the tips of the two fishing rods.  Interesting piece of piscatorial folk art.  The buyer may wish to replace the rope border with a traditional frame. Fish is apprx. 15" L and plaque is apprx. 20 ½" W x 11" H.  (CH-18)
