~ Hi CW Gang ~
Folk art real wood carving mini Rocking Chair. Made in Quebec by A. Nadeau. Lots of time must have went into this as it is very, very well done. Very cute. Until you see the last picture with the pen besides it, it looks like a life sized Rocking chair in the other pictures.
Made by Quebec artist Nadeau in 1970s. Has the hammered copper signed plate on the piece. Sweet carving.
