This young man looks like he lived in the Alps by his clothes and hat. As far as we can tell the three-dimensional silhouette was carved out of a solid piece of mahogany or walnut, then the frame was applied to the carving to make this charming art piece. The silhouette was then tinted to give him his features – blond curly hair, pink lips, nice rosy checks and his natty hat, white shirt and brown jacket. This is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship. It measures 6 5/8” square including the frame. The circle that contains the image is 4 ¼” in diameter. It is in very good vintage condition with a few dings in the wood, but no cracks or chips in the wood.
