This is a Star Spangled red white and blue lighthouse carved by outsider artist Kent Gutzmer. Gutzmer has become very sought after for his hand carved folk art pieces. I first came across Gutzmer's work in the 1980's. Think it was an Uncle Sam figure. I believe he would be around 65-70 years old now and I am not sure of his whereabouts or if he is still working. I have sold others over the years and each time I come across one I am impressed with the workmanship and also the uniqueness of the piece. This one is an impressive 52 inches tall (including flag pole); note the sea gull with a fish in his mouth. Signed on the bottom of the piece K Gutzmer No 1. I bet you have just the right place of this piece in your home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will help arrange shipping for you; my experience with large or small has been excellent. I do offer an easy layaway program. Usually just 20% down with the remaining term somewhat negotiable---I try to be very flexible on this. Just email to discuss layaway terms. I guarantee everything I sell to be authentic - no exceptions. I have been in business over 30 years and my reputation is without flaw.
