Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Description: A really quite wonderful American Folk Art Sculpture that has quite some age and likely dates to the 1930-40's. It is titled on the front "Family Affair" and signed A. Shapiro. I couldn't find anything out about the artist. This is such a cleaver work of art made out of furniture legs and finials. The painting is delightful as well. A real delight.
