They were hand carved and most were artist signed.Each piece can be displayed on the wall with the provided sawtooth hanger or can be placed on a table top for display. They were only painted on one side. The gray horse featured in this listing was signed by Rick Sharp. Rick was the original founder and creative force behind Wolf Creek.

This horse is signed Rick Sharp, 82, #3. This indicates that it was only the third horse produced in this line.The horse measures approximately 7" tall by 10-1/2" wide and 2deep. It is in excellent condition. Don't miss the opportunity to have a signed piece by the original designer and visionary.
Wolf Creek Woodworking was a family owned toy factory that manufactured wooden toys and other primitive wooden art objects in the late 1970's through the mid to late 1990s. The factories were located in Beaman and Eldora, Iowa. The Wolf Creek Woodworking company was noted for employing mostly retired area natives known as the "Elderly Elves". These Grandpas and Grandmas hand built a variety of solid wood, primitive and folk art objects.
The "Elderly Elves" worked diligently to provide wood-crafted folk art objects and primitive wooden pieces that could be used and cherished for generations. Most of the pieces are signed by the artist who crafted and painted each individual piece. We have a small amount of the remaining inventory, and many came from the personal collections of the original owners.
