Two by Two...

Noah's Ark Folk Art with 20 animals: $850
(boat: 24"L x 11"T x 7.5"W, animals range from 3"x4.5" to 2"x1.75") 

While browsing through one of our many antique magazines,
Rooney ran across an advertisement, RGL Antiques in New Jersey, picturing
an amazing display of an 1875 Noah's Ark with over 300 paired animals.
We thought that it was a fabulous way to display the folk art.
Our Noah's Ark doesn't have such a large flock, 
but would look beautiful displayed as art.

When you look around the shop, you'll find animals all sizes and prices.
