Antique - Folk Art - Inmate - Maine State Prison Jockey - Hand Carved 1920s. This incredible piece of folk art was entirely hand carved and painted by a prisoner from the Maine State Prison.
The wooden and glass box was also crafted by the same inmate. It's in mint condition with original paint and the craftmanship and size of it is fantastic. I spoke to the historian at the prison shop and was able to date this item back to the early 1900's. His is a terrific piece of a American history and makes an outstanding display piece.
