These are 2 Quebec Folk Art Hand Carved Figures from the company Audet.
Hand carved and painted by Quebec folk artist, R. Normand of Montreal. He was a flat-plane carver, active in the 1930's to 1940's.
Usually his carvings were of Quebec figures in traditional costume and situations. He usually painted his work and his carvings were generally smaller, in the 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 inch range.
R. Normand, was one of several flat-plane wood carvers whose carving careers seemed to have stopped sometime in the 40's. The second world war may have been a factor.
Here there are 2 Figures - One a Sea Captain in a Blue Pea-Coat with a Pipe in his mouth. The Second is a One-Legged Pirate with a Beer Stein in his Hand. He wears a Red Shirt and Has a Bandana around his head.
They both stand 4.5" H and are in Excellent Condition with no breaks or missing paint.
A Terrific Gift for Folk Art Enthusiast. VERY COLLECTIBLE!
