New York Jacob Mathey Folk Outsider Art Carved Charlie Chaplin 12 Doll 1983. The clothes were made by Jacob Mathey's wife Doris. Mathey would carve these carvings on his farm when he had free time on nights and weekends.Before Jacob moved to his farm near Poolville, he had several occupations. He was a lumber jack in the Adirondacks for several years, was a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps. And when he retired from farming he went into construction building houses, barns and a medical center in West Winfield with his brothers, Henry and Frederick. Most recently he has become known for his wood carvings.
Much to his amazement, the pieces have become very popular. Recently, the Quincy Square Museum in Earlville opened a showing of his carvings.
