Articulated Figures

One of my favorite categories of American folk art is articulated figures.

These 2 figures just went for $ 2200.00 at the latest Noel Barrett auction. Yes, I got blown out of the water again! The larger piece is technically an artist's model and the smaller figure is a nice example of a limberjack, probably dating from the late 19th century.
