    My friend and I went over too her girlfriends house last night. She has been remolding her house and getting rid of things. She ask me if I wanted the wood figure of Aunt Jemima. I said yes of course, she will look good in the kitchen. She said I could just have her. She said that she has had it almost 40 years. What a nice piece just to give away. I believe this would be considered Folk Art? Also wondering if this figure is really supposed to be Aunt Jemima? I think she might be too skinny to be her. She is 22 1/2" tall and 11" at the base.(6 hours Later) After talking to several people I believe the figure is a Pilgrim or a Quaker, not Aunt Jemima like the lady thought that gave her to me.

      Definitely not Aunt Jemima. Aunt Jemima wears a kerchief on her head, not a bonnet.
      She also wears a shawl or second kerchief tied around her neck, and not the collar your figurine wears. Quaker ladies would part their hair down the middle and stretch it behind the ears and under the bonnet, nowhere near the pretty curls yours has.
      But, and this has no scientific background, just that gut feeling we get sometimes, she looks more like a pioneer than a quaker or pilgrim.
      I think it may be the bare arms...quakers and pilgrims would cover up every last bit of skin, but pioneers were more practical, and long sleeves got torn and dirty quickly.
      But like I said, I have no printed backup for my last impression...just gut feeling.
