Magnificent carvings

These sold Sunday at Ken Farmer Auctions in Virginia, the one on the left for $7,000, the other for $4,500. That's before the auctioneer's fee. The artist was Charles H. Saunders of Shelby, N.C., who died in 1984. Mr. Saunders carried his carvings in a case to schools and fairs, and won awards. Here's more about this special man.


  1. Wow, these are incredible! So, they were more contemporary or were they done early 20th century?

  2. Very fine sculpture, and impressive results. Thanks for bringing this artist to my attention.
