Vintage 1930s - 1940s Black Americana Mammy wooden wall towel holder, with brown face and arms, rather than black seen on most, and a very sweet smile.
Original unaltered alligatored paint finish that definitely has considerable age. Small losses to the paint on the extended arms and a line running down, starting at the nose, where the paint was scratched or disturbed at some point. A beautiful original old piece, with some definite character.
Back is plywood, arms appear to be wood. Removable bar (a new replacement) can be used for paper towels or to display your treasured Black Americana hand or dish towels.
Measures: 12 3/8 inches wide, 11 1/2 inches high, arms extend out 4 3/4 inches, arms 3/8 inch thick, back 1/4 inch thick.
A fabulous piece of Black Americana.
