Carnival knockdown


This is a ball toss target once owned by the pioneering folk art collectors Isobel and Harvey Kahn. Mr. Kahn was on the American Folk Art Museum collections committee and was a founding member of the American Folk Art Society. The Kahns displayed their collection in the Hessian House in Millburn, N.J., built in the 1730s. The month after I acquired this sculpture, Mr. Kahn died at age 86. You can read his obit here.
