History: Albino Manca was born in Tertenia, Italy in 1898 and became a sculptor of commemorative works, a medalist, craftsperson, and professor of art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. Most of his career was spent in New York City, although he spent much time in Italy w he was also a student at the Academy of Fine Arts and exhibited t as well as at the Roman Exchange and the Italian Salon. Other exhibition venues were the National Sculpture Society, National Academy, Pennsylvania Academy, and Rockefeller Center. According to Ask Art, among his works are numerous medallions including ones for the Vatican in Rome. The "East Coast Memorial" in Battery Park in New York City is his most famous large-scale work and depicts a bronze eagle, 18 and 1/2 feet high, atop eight granite slabs. It is a memorial to President John F. Kennedy. Manca also did WPA (Works Progress Administration) sculpture.

Manca died in 1976 and his jewelry is exceedingly hard to find. This is the first I've seen in 25 years of buying and selling jewelry!
