House Portrait

Very unusual relief carving of a Rockville Centre, Long Island, N.Y. home. Original paint, probably over some gesso enhancement.  The frame was made in a house form, with a peak, and has wear to the gold paint . A partially illegible notation on the back identifies the address, the date it was done (1932), and indicates it was made "by Henry".  We located a photo of the house taken in 2017 on-line which shows it to be painted gray and have second story additions over the two end rooms.  Otherwise, the house is identical. A most unique folk art item. 13" to peak of frame x 20" wide.  (CH-19)
