S/2454 Antique Treen Georgian Hardwood Fescue
A rare well grained hardwood fescue, carved with a clenched fist and a collar with diamonds and crosses within square surrounds.
Fescues were pointers used in schools for teaching children their letters, paticularly in a dame's school. This well carved example is a serious collector's item, having a lovely rich colour and patination.
