This charming antique Noah's Ark is painted a delightful blue; it was found with eighteen carved animals and two sets of Noah and his wife. The ark is a flat bottom German piece with fabric hinges that allow one side of the roof to open. It is 11 inches long and 5 1/4 inches tall. The animals are carved and painted, include several birds, and two have lost their legs. The ark has a split at one end of the flat bottom; there is an age crack on one side of the roof, a few scuffs, and some tiny chips to the wood in spots. It is a charming folk art piece from the 19th Century designated as a "Sunday Toy"; its color and folky paint make it a stand out.
