Black Americana Church Alms Collection Sculpture

  • This is a rare piece of Southern 19th century black Americana.
    It depicts a black woman in what appears to be church garb holding a collection bowl.

    By the use of a weight inside, every time a coin is inserted into the bowl her head nods affirmatively.

    Carved in wood except for the head which is composition. This is piece that shows both a whimsical and sensitive representation.
    Possibly unique.

    Measures 14" tall x 5" wide x 8" deep.
