The figure stands on an oval base with rocks and tufts of grass. He wears a blue coat with orange trim, yellow sprigged waistcoat, crimson breeches, white stockings and (black?) buckled shoes. He carries his hat in his left hand, a document in his right.

The statuette is eroneously titled " George Washington", the New-York Historical Society attributes this statuette to Enoch Wood, but it relates to the work of his cousin Enoch (1759-1840). See their website: and search for Ralph Wood Terms of Use Credits
