Carved & Painted Folk Art Ball & Ring Toss Game

A rare, large-sized American Folk Art carnival ball and ring toss figure with cage. The figure with extended left arm and a bread-board like chest painted as a white shirt with a big red tie—his head surmounted atop a blue painted cage.

The game is all original and maintains a great, complex, worn painted surface. The color and wear to the painted tie is just fantastic!

Though fairly large the entire object can be hung on a wall (it is wired for hanging) or put on the floor or a pedestal and viewed in the round.

Provenance: Ricco-Maresca; Private Collection.


Condition: Excellent with expected wear from age and use. The figure's head has an old, period, drying crack to the right side proper of his head. The rings are later, but old, and were assembled to be paired with the game figure.
