Wagon Train Plaques

These plaques are listed at Worthopedia http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/pair-1937-folk-art-carved-wood-marquetry-wagon .   The backs are signed by Russell M. Blood
Isn't it interesting the extent of the variety of items that were made by our parents?  I remember that the hanger was two pieces of leather strips tied in a knot at one end and the two loose ends glued to the edge of the plaque at the top.  Very original. 


  1. I was hoping to find oout their value without joining worthpoint

  2. I have a RussellM. Blood inlay of an Elk with a fawnin a forest. It is Stamped on the back with "Russell M. Blood, Western Woodcraft, Garland Wyoming". It hung in my parent's cabin in Swan Lake, Mt. since the 1950's. It is 12 1/4" by 10 1/4". Can you give me any information on it's actual age and maybe a value?
