Ship's Figurehead

WONDERFUL, 19TH CENTURY, CARVED FIGUREHEAD DEPICTING A YOUNG MIDSHIPMAN. Very nicely carved in a very displayable size measuring 36" tall. Excellent surface being a mix of original and old touch up paint in very pleasing colors. He wears a deep blue, 3/4 length, jacket, white pants, and a collared white shirt with a blue kerchief and gilt pin. His right arm and hand are at his side and tucked under his left arm is a book that likely depicts a navigational log which midshipmen were expected to keep. He stands on a portion of scroll and leaf carving where the figure attached to the vessel. Condition overall excellent. Paint all nicely age mellowed. A most delightful portrayal of a handsome young sailor. Unusual subject matter in figurehead carving.
