Folk Art Man with Walking Stick, Basket Backpack, German Wood and Leather Clogs. This unique, vintage Folk Art Man has amazing details! In excellent condition with little to no wear, he measures 13-3/8 inches tall.
He is wearing German style Wooden Clogs, with leather on top, and is dressed in black fabric knee pants (with cuffs), red knitted wool socks (look hand knitted), a deep blue fabric tunic top (with cuffs), long red cotton neck scarf (hemmed edge), and black felt fisherman's style cap.
He stands on a round natural wood base, holding his real tree twig walking stick in his right hand, has a long natural woven basket tied on his back with leather hand-knotted straps, and has a pipe made of wooden beads in his mouth, held by his left.
His head and hands are covered in natural burlap, and his straight, longish hair appears to me to be natural colored flax.
Round natural wood base has bark on sides and looks like pine wood measures 5-1/4 inches diameter and is in nice condition, but does have a crack in the wood on one side.
Real wood twig walking stick measures 8 inches long and is approximately 3/8-inch wide.
Basket backpack is 4 inches long; measures 3-3/8 inches diameter at top and tapers to 2 inches diameter at bottom.
No markings or signature as to maker, but someone did beautiful work on this unique, highly detailed, vintage piece of folk art!
