"Fish Story" Whirligig
This is a wonderfully inventive whirligig of a man in a row boat towing his prize fish to shore. The man is carved in wood but the boat and fish are formed from sheet metal with various other metal parts. All are painted black. It measures 41" from stem to tail, 12" tall (17 1/2" tall on the stand) and 12" wide at the oar tips.
A propellor in the belly of the fish turns a shaft that moves the towing man's arms and oars. The contemporary stand is a section of log.
We believe this dates to the rich Folk Art period of the 1920's and 30's.
