5" Height x 1 ¼" Depth x 3 ½ Width. Offered for your careful review and consideration is this rare, absolutely untouched, early 20th century vintage Ame ri can folk art, hand painted, molded cast iron'singing cowboy' enamel figure, complete with cowboy hat, red tied neck scarf or bandana, holding a large western-style black acoustic guitar, wearing western blue jeans, a mustard colored, loose western shirt and cowboy boots. It hasn't been oiled or even cleaned with soap and water. It was only very gently dusted with a fine red sable artist's brush to remove years of dust and debris which had been covering it and obscuring its details and colors from view.There are some minor episodes of enamel paint loss where the bottle opener would have come into contact with other things, most often the surface of a table or bar. This enamel paint loss is minor and no attempt has been made to'in-paint' or to disguise this loss. The entire figure remains as it was found. There are also some areas of slight oxidation, where the iron has slightly rusted and the enamel paint has been affected. These are largely infrequent and minor. The hooked bottle opener mechanism on the lower side of the figure is somewhat disguised and'stealth. It still has its original, unadulterated and undamaged opening hook, intended to get under the crimped, tin metal edge of the beer cap and then pry the lid completely off the beer bottle.
A thrilling, rare piece of early 20th century vintage Ame ri can folk art, Ame ric ana and of earlier romanticized and celebrated Ame ri can cowboy culture and of the great Ame ri can West. Way cool and then some. Good-Very Good overall antique condition.
