Hand Carved Wooden Heart Whimsey

Hand Carved Wooden Heart Whimsey

  • Whimsies were often carved by sailors during the long days at sea.

    The trick was to carve the entire piece from one piece of wood without breaks.

    This heart whimsy is shaped like a weaving shuttle, but was probably never used as such. Likely made as a gift.

    Beautifully hand carved from one piece of wood, open on all four sides.

    7 1/4 inches long

    Found a New Hampshire
