Realism, artistry and attention to detail were the hallmarks of the American sculptor Anne Townsend and this Brown Pelican figurine from 1971 embodies all three. Shown with his head up as if about to be thrown a fish (or perhaps swallowing one) the bird contrasts nicely with the grass and sand below. It's also nicely sized at 4.75" in length, 4" in width and 10 3/8" in height. Crafted of ceramic you'll find it to be in excellent condition and signed "The Townsend's, C. 1971" on the back while "WNB11" is marked on the bottom. Sadly the company, Townsend Ceramic & Glass Inc. (1964-2004) is now closed but the appreciation for their ceramics continues on.
