Set of three hand carved polychrome wooden soldiers - antique/vintage

Regular price £270.00

These three folk art soldiers are just wonderful. They wear Imperial Russian uniforms with designs from the Napoleonic era. We cannot establish how old they are. We have not cleaned them as they have a lovely patina.They have obvious signs of age with some chipping and flaking. One has lost a thumb. We have stabilized the surface with a coating of clear wax and gently buffed them. They are all very individual and we wondered if they were modelled on actual people. Each one has their own character. They look magnificent standing as a group. 

The tallest of the three is 57cm tall to the top of his feathered plume and is 14cm wide across the base.
