Robert Frost in Porcelain by Listed Sculptor Joe Brown

A beloved American poet, a champion of colloquial speech and rural life despite his being raised in two cities on opposite coasts (San Francisco, California and Lawrence, Massachusetts), and a national and international figure who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize four times. A truly great American. I still remember his reading of The Gift Outright at the inauguration of President Kennedy.

The sculptor here is Joe Brown, who captured an older Frost to perfection in porcelain. He is known for his sports sculptures as well as portraiture, and is widely recognized and well listed.

CONDITION is excellent. The piece has no chips, cracks, or other problems. There is one small area at the bottom back where the porcelain is discolored by a bit of the adhesive used to affix the piece to its wooden base, mentioned for accuracy and likely would clean since porcelain vitrifies and should be impervious. Signed and dated 1951 in the porcelain. Measures 8" tall including the base which is mahogany, and measures 5" wide x 4 1/2" deep x 3/4" tall.

A nice piece for a library or bookshelf. Treat your favorite poetry lover... even if that's you. Enjoy!
