Pair of Penguins   Pair of Penguins

Very folky pair of penguins. They were obviously carved by the same hand and were purchased together, so are being sold as a pair. They each sit in a 3 point stance, with the tail resting on the ground to provide additional stability. 8" and 10" tall respectively. The taller of the two had an old break to the bill visible in the photos, but it is secure and not distracting. The carver is unknown and probably wasn't highly skilled, but achieved very comical poses, especially when they are placed facing one another as shown in the photos. Circa probably early - mid 20th century. Original paint with wear as shown. (CH-28/9)
