Antique Carved and Decorated Ship's Figurehead, circa 1890

About

Antique carved and decorated ship's figurehead, circa 1890, depicting a beautiful woman draped in the patriotic colors of liberty. Masterful carving of graceful asymmetric dress, delicate features and elegant, ebony hair. This figurehead is carved out of the end of the stem rising from the keel, in the Breton and Normandy manner. The sculpture is in original paint, with scuffs to the nose, chin and cheek, and stabile age cracks on the side which do not affect the structural stability at all. She is in remarkably good condition for having lived on the bow of a ship.
