 A Very Fine Carving By Roland Couture


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

This is a very finely carved and detailed small carving of a man holding two grooming brushes by Roland Couture of Breakeyville, Quebec.  Circa 1950. I have only two carvings by this gentleman, and have not encountered them very often over my years of looking, but I really wish there were more.  Expressive carving, fine detail, and wonderful paint makes this piece stand out. You will notice in one of the shots that he carved in his name across the man's back at the belt line.  There is also a very faint signature on the front on the white base.  4 1/2" tall.
