I bought this from David Davies when he cleaned out his premier folk art collection, around 2000. My father lived on his estate for about 10 years.
Many of the pieces from this collection are now on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC and The American Folk Art Museum in NYC.
The quote here is on the wall at the Smithsonian.
