Carved Wood, Leather, and Painted Figural BroochCarved Wood, Leather, and Painted Figural BroochCarved Wood, Leather, and Painted Figural BroochCarved Wood, Leather, and Painted Figural Brooch

This c1940s carved wood brooch depicts a Mexican man pulling his donkey. He is wearing a hand painted hat with zig zag designs. His jacket is hand painted as well as his socks. He holds red plastic covered string (original) over his shoulder and attached through a carved hole to the donkey - his "rope". His donkey has a leather saddle with hand painted details which is held on by a brass rivet on the back. He has a glass or plastic eye.

The carving is very intricate, very detailed. Wonderful workmanship as you can actually feel the memento of the walking.

Quite a chunky piece measuring just shy of 3" across and 2 1/4' tall. The thickness of the wood is just shy of 1/2".

The original pin back with safety catch works perfectly.

The condition is excellent without damage. The leather on the saddle is worn but the leather is unbroken.
