Rare Profile Relief of King George III
Hand carved and Painted Wood
26" high x 16 ½" wide x 4" deep
This exceptional Folk Art bas relief portrait profile sculpture is hewn from solid timber, with an unusual hollowed out back. The quality and style of carving and decoration suggests it was made by a skilled ship's figurehead carver.
