    Leach Signed Folk Carving Bull Head Wall Plaque, circa 1870s. Set on a stippled backing, this detailed bull's head with glass eyes makes an impressive display. Often used by butchers as a trade sign, examples by this well-known artist have become increasing difficult to find. The back is marked "H LEACH WOBURN MASS". Leach paid particular attention to detail and this piece is no exception. Dimensions are approximately 13.75" x 16.25". Leach's works can be found at such museums as the Shelburne and the Smithsonian.

    Excellent, with a wonderful rich patina.
