1960s Hand-Carved Folk Art Armchair in an Underwater Theme

About

A great example of Folk Art wood carving, in a simple yet effective form. This charming chair is hand "chisel" carved, creating an uneven hewn texture throughout. One arm has cutouts of dolphins and waves, while the opposite arm features sea horses and waves. The front side is embellished with two diving fish, and the back side has cut-out waves. The seat and back are original leatherette, surrounded by tacks. Construction is complimented by domed nails along seams and arm tops. The chair shows honest wear and great charm.
