Highest quality American made limited edition Pewter small sculpture by Lance of Hudson, Massachusetts, from a design by the sculptor H Wilson. The sculpture is fully stamped for the edition (474/3000), the maker and the artist. Beautifully cast, the sculpture is an outstandingly dynamic portrait of a wandering Albatross in full flight over ocean waves. The bird has a sweeping 5 1/2" wingspan, and the representation is detailed down to the very feathers. Very difficult to photograph to give a full sense of the movement and energy in this piece, it is a stunning rendition of nature at her most dramatic. Wonderful gift, this could be used as a paperweight because of the solid casting, put on display on a desk, or added to a collection of high quality animal castings.
