Ulysses S. Grant Carving
A 20th C. carving of Ulysses S. Grant in a variety of paints. Pine throughout with pieced sections and a removable hat. Excellent original condition with an untouched surface. Signed on the base “C.O LANE”. This carving was purportedly carved by a local resident of Galena, IL and given to the Galena Historical Society in support of local talent. This carving remained in the historical society until being de-accessioned in 2012 as part of means to raise funds for the museum. A strong visual representation displaying Grant during the highlight of his career and a wonderful piece of American folk art.21"T.
