Primitive plane

This crate-wood plane was made by a Georgia woman, June Allison. I really like it and have tried to find similar work by Allison, without success. In the middle is a screwdriver, which I guess is supposed to represent the plane's steering mechanism. Attached to the tail is a clothespin. The front opens to reveal a compartment. The simple green and off-white paint decoration is very attractive.

  2. It's hard to see in this photo, but if you look at the front of the plane, a wing juts out on one side of the propeller, as if the normal number of wings just wasn't enough.

  3. I like this one. Maybe she was an aspiring pilot.
