The personality and character of this whimsical carving speaks for itself.   We are not entirely sure about the provenance, as it was attributed to a carver who is known for his decoy carvings. There is a large “B” carved into the back, and it was thought that this might be by Bryon Bruffee.

This is a good size carving and will make a distinctive nautical theme addition to any decor. 

The popularity of these fine whimsical carvings never seems to wane.
