Wonderful folk art wood carving depicting a hobo man. The man carries a bundle of belongings and a long stemmed pipe. He stands in front of a double compartment open box, probably used for holding pencils.

The carving is well-detailed with raggedy trousers, shirt, jacket and hat. He has a craggy, beaded face. The man is painted in matte finish paints and the box is varnished.

Probably made from available scrap wood. Dates to the early 1930’s.

Measures 4-1/2 inches wide x 3 inches deep (front to back) x 4-3/9 inches high.

Man is approximately 5 inches tall x 2-1/2 inches wide.

Very good condition. No cracks, chips, or breaks. Very minor paint loss.

A great example of Depression Era folk art.
