Framed Wedgwood Black Basalt Plaque First Americans Charles Banks Wilson Signed For Sale

Framed Wedgwood Black Basalt Plaque First Americans Charles Banks Wilson Signed

U.S.A. shipping only. No International shipping.

All of my current sales open at $19.95 without reserve ! !

DESCRIPTION: Wedgwood Plaque, “CHIEF BLACKHAWK / SAUK AND FOX TRIBE / 1767 – 1838” gold-framed bas-relief black basalt circular medallion plaque by Wedgwood, No. 63 “in a Limited Edition of 500” from a series called “THE FIRST AMERICANS”, commissioned in 1971 by Bill Y. James of James & James from engravings by Charles Banks Wilson. This design was intended as “NUMBER ONE IN A SERIES OF TWELVE” but the commissioner Bill James died before any of the other eleven plaques could be produced via Wedgwood. Thus, this design is the only such plaque to have been produced. According to sources contemporary to the early 1970s this plaque originally sold for $195.00

The moss-green back matt of this example bears an autograph signature by the designer Charles Banks Wilson. Unfortunately however, a prior owner placed an adhesive hanging-hook (since removed) over the “Banks” in the signature. (Perhaps a skilled paper conservator could remove the adhesive residue to reveal the scarce signature?) The signature appears to be the real-thing, as the dotted-“i” in “Wilson” shows a bit of moisture smudging. Note that the autograph signature matches the imprinted signature printed in gold on the back of the plaque. I have seen other examples of this plaque, bearing the same mossy green back matt, but without the black ink signature.

Dimensions: Framed plaque measures 9 ½ inches diameter (x) 1 inch deep and weighs 2 pounds, 1 ounce (930 grams). With wrappings, the package weight doubles to 4 pounds (1814.37 grams)

PAYMENT: By PayPal, within 7 days following sale close.

SHIPPING: Plaque will be wrapped and double-boxed to ensure safe arrival to your door. Shipping will cost $12.07 USPS Standard Mail; for Priority Mail the cost is $31.30

Six (6) photos of the plaque are included here. The other six (6) images show other items that I am selling currently…all of which open at the same price of $19.95, without reserve! Please take a gander! I have some wonderful items.

Please let me know if you should have any questions.

Thank you for looking!
