 Folky Boat From Red Bay, Labrador


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

This whimsical sailor comes all the way from Red Bay, Labrador, and was made by a carver there named Eric Bridle in 1999.  I like the balance and simplicity of the piece and had never seen a piece from Labrador, so he has sat in my window for the last five years. I just decided to put something else there. It's nice because it is only 3" wide so it goes along the wall on a narrow shelf easily.  Painted pine with cotton sails.26" long, 3" deep, 25" tall.  In excellent condition.  Signed and dated on bottom.
