Hand-carved figureheads
These newly carved custom pieces are made just for us and are inspired by vintage artifacts we've seen along the way. 
They're carved of a dense wood called "Suar" wood and if you keep them oiled with linseed or teak oil, they'll retain a beautiful luster.
Pieces that are available will read "available" under the photo; otherwise that piece has been sold.
As always, please call or email for pricing; our inventory is constantly updating.
