Dating to the 1930's this carved art work is a sample of a wood workers abilities and most likely a token of love. It depicts a ladies head in the center, two angels on the top corners and a swan and a squirrel on the bottom corners. The left hand side depicts nationalistic images of oak tree and the depiction of St George slaying the dragon. The right hand side depicts a classical Roman figure displaying an abundance of provision and therefore wealth. This has all the appearances of a love token pledge which displays the suitors ability to work with his hands, illustrate his intentions of providing for his intended and his patriotic appreciation of his countries historical wealth.This archaic style of wood working was an homage to the medieval work in England that was being revived between the wars.
