Great pair of carved Man and Woman with jointed arms, blades. This is a very strong pair of carvings. The man and woman have jointed arms and are each holding knives. They have incised details, small nails for eyes, and are weathered from outdoor use.
These likely have been made as whirligigs, however, though the arms can be moved, they do not now spin freely. "Maria" is written on the base of the woman.
The man has an inscription on his belt: "Och Jubla Som Barnen Jubla", which Google translates as Swedish for "and rejoice as the children rejoice". The figures were found in Missouri and are from the first half of the 20th century. They are in good, weathered condition with minor surface wear as seen in the photos. The woman has chips missing from the back of her head and her left shoulder.
With the arms positioned as they show in the photos, the man is 14 1/2" high by 5 3/4" wide by 10 deep. The woman is 12 1/4" high by 5 1/2" wide by 8 1/2 deep.
