GAVEL with HEART

Unusual piece of Illinois folk art. This hand carved gavel was found in north central Illinois. It is 8 1/2" in length. '1805' is stamped into the head while '1860' is indelibly written on the handle. There's little doubt this is 19th century, but there's no way to know if either number is accurate. What can't be missed is the wonderful heart carved into the handle. Perhaps this was a reminder to the one in whose hand this gavel was placed. SOLD: October 27th, 2020
