Ship's Figurehead

19TH CENTURY SHIP'S FIGUREHEAD carved in the form of a full standing Scottish Highlander. Nice displayable size measuring 48" tall. Very handsome, high quality, depiction of a bearded male highlander dressed in his traditional outfit. Well detailed with great attention paid to all parts of his costume. He wears a dark green plaid kilt with a fur and animal head sporran on the front. His right hand is in position to draw his basket hilt sword from its scabbard. On his right side he wears a dirk knife. His tall tartan socks are held up with garters that are tied off with decorative bows. He wears black shoes with square buckles. He stands on a base that is decorated both sides with classic scroll carving. The paint is not original but was done some time ago using a very pleasant pallet of colors. Condition overall excellent. Circa 1860.
