"The Cobbler" Figurine features the humor of Norman Rockwell in the form of a weary cobbler, charged with the task of repairing a dolly's shoe. A little girl in a pink ruffled dress stands beside him with all the faith and expectancy that he can surely make her dolly whole again. From Rockwell's painting, "A Cobbler Studying Doll's Shoe" that appeared on the cover of the Literary Digest published April 30, 1921, this is a humorous piece that captures humanity as only Rockwell could. The cobbler is clearly befuddled by how to repair a shoe so small!
According to the mark, this piece was made for the Norman Rockwell Museum in 1985. This porcelain figurine measures 3-1/2 inches tall, on a 3 inch by 1 3/4 inch rectangular base. The backstamp reads " 'The Cobbler' by Norman Rockwell, c.1985 The Norman Rockwell Museum, Inc." It also has the "Norman Rockwell Museum Seal of Authenticity." It is in like new condition.
