Sheep or Lamb Carving

Wonderful carving of a sheep or lamb with a full coat of wool. Found in Maine and believed to be American made, although it could be British. The artist, unfortunately, is unknown. He or she carved elevated swirls throughout the piece to simulate wool, with great effect. Approximately 11"L x 8 ½"H at head and 6"H at back. Carved from one solid block of wood. There are some minor age lines, as might be expected, and one on the back was touched up a while ago. There is also a secure line in the right front hoof, but the piece is unique, in good overall condition and displays very well. Circa 19th or very early 20th century. (CO-1)
