A Whimsical Man

Click any image for larger view.

HERE’S A REALLY UNIQUE ANONYMOUS 19th CENTURY TIN WHIRLEYGIG, beautifully formed with concave and convex planes to catch the wind. The form is very whimsical and the paint is subtle. Thank goodness he has survived long enough to be appreciated and protected, as life for these little guys could be short.

height: 18- 3/8
depth: 3- 3/8
width/length: 11 in.
