Seller: bertramsca (195) 100%, Location: Stockton, California, Ships to: US, Item: 254544000846 Beautifully hand carved Black Forest inspired ELF. In Ireland, he would be called a Leprechaun, in Norway a Troll. In Germany and Austria, he would be known as a ZWERG or dwarf. He is hand carved from 350 year old re-purposed TEAK from an old farmhouse in Java. The carving was done by an artist in about 1988. He is from my personal collection, and I hope he brings as much success to his next owner as he has to me. He sat on my desk for 30 years. Due to the fact that he is carved from TEAK, he could be used outdoors in the garden, and allowing him to turn silvery gray. His base is roughly 9" x 6" and the total height of the carving is a skoasch over 12 inches. His finish is simple teak oil. Please note that a hairline fracture was professionally repaired to his right arm when I first brought him back to the States in 1988. If not mentioned, you would not notice, but in full disclosure... Primary Material: Wood, Style: Black Forest, Age: Post-1940, Maker: Artist / Wood Carver, Original/Reproduction: Vintage Reproduction, Color: Medium Wood Tone
