13-Foot ANTIQUE 1800's Carved Wood PRISON TRAMP FOLK ART CHAIN Sculpture Carving. I have seen a lot of carved wooden chains over the years, but this one is a MONSTER...Absolutely the longest I have ever seen. NOT A REPRODUCTION this is an early piece of hand-carved Southern folk art. This is one of several sections from an estate in West Tennessee, found stored in an old barn loft. There are 49 individual links, including the large 4 1/2 ring at one end. Appears to be Southern Pine, as best I can tell. There is a quarter, shown in some pics, for size reference. Entire piece measures 159" long a whopping 13' 3" long. Each individual link measures 4.75 long. Wood is quite dry, from being stored for so many years. Displays beautifully, with no chips, crack, breaks, or repairs.
Guaranteed to be old, and not a modern reproduction! All items are from a smoke-free home. I take extra care in packing, and you will never find inked newspaper touching your new treasures.
