from a painting by Doris Putnam, doll maker
Martha Bishop's mother. Little did they know that
Noah's ark is my favorite Sunday School story.
Here's a link to the prior post for a closer look.
Primitive Folkart Prints
wooden Noah's arks.
1960's prim woodland ark. These carved animals just
make me smile, especially the porcupines.
This little ark is actually an accessory to the
American Girl doll Felicity, 1774.
The top slides to the side of this Italian mini toy ark.
hand carved and carefully painted. It's probably from the 1970's
or 80's. Someone spent a lot of time & effort on this ark.
It came without a Noah, but there are plenty of
wood carvers here in the Ozarks.
(These were toys my kids played with.)
Luckily, most of the animals store inside the arks.
I really don't like dusting!
Thank you Martha and Doris for this wonderful print,
as you can see, I have the perfect home for it!
Just back from a week in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
visiting our daughter. We took a day trip to Knoville
to visit the Museum of East Tennessee History to see
this display. I'll do a picture post soon.
