Tall farmer figure of painted wood with applied tin ears. This figure was done by the same unidentified artist as a pair of monkeys and several figures with similar marble eyes and tin ears.
They are believer to have been made in Ohio or Indiana and may have been part of a circus environment with figures and animals. The American Folk Art Museum has a group of figures and a pony that were
from the the Leo and Dorothy Rabkin Folk art collection. This figure was once part of the NYS Historical Association Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY.
