Chip-Carved Cedar Cartouche, c.1880 Item # F0057
An architectural gem salvaged from a Portland building, this piece was made by chip carving. Also called spoon carving, this painstaking woodworking technique uses a small knife to chip out small pieces of wood to create a larger decorative design. You can see and feel the expert hand of the carver here, in the unevenly spaced side notches and the varied depth of the center figure. A keystone-shaped piece like this most likely graced the top of a decorative archway once upon a time.
