Folk Art Handcarved fabulous wooden lady in white dress, signed "Edgar Thibodeau". 24 inches tall. The base, a separate piece that looks to have been a pattern or mold from an industrial setting, is 10.5 wide, 2.625 deep and is included in the 24 inch height. With long slender arms and graceful hands, this appears to be a portrait of a tall and elegant lady. It is difficult to say which is more incredible; the dress she is wearing or the rendering of it entirely in wood. Note that the back closing edge of the dress is delineated as well as the shaping waist darts. I am not able to determine with certainty if this lady is carved from one piece of wood. It looks as though it is. I have attempted to see underneath with limited success and there may have been some lamination involved in establishing a block of solid wood this size. Her shoes and feet are completely carved and present underneath the dress. I love the way she is portrayed realistically and not in a idealized way- and so much personality comes through. I have done research on Mr. Thibodeau; that surname is not uncommon in the Northeast, where I live, but have been unable to find any one who was a carver or folk artist. I have priced this wonderful addition to your collection very reasonably ; this is fairly heavy and will require a large box for shipping.
Shipping charge is approximate. I will refund overcharge. Please take a moment to read my terms of sale.
