Product Description

A stunning and rare barber shop display figure..

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand that it could date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s (potentially earlier). Of African origin, we understand the figure formed part of a window display in the barber shop window. It’s such a charming piece…

Hand carved in wood and naive in its build, the hand painted nature is what appeals. Given the authentic paint chipping and consequent patina, the display piece is quite unique and also a fantastic decorative or collectable item…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is good. There are some surface scars and abrasions, some paint chipping and some tatty areas. We feel the current condition is what appeals, and adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
