Jay Lynch Original Art Wacky Packages Sketch Toilet Seat. Not A Sketch Card For Sale
It's something new to collect! Here at last is this one-of-a-kind, original art, hand painted WACKY TOILET SEAT! This is a brand new, never used, standard size toilet seat. Hand-painted on the lid is the iconic Ajerx moron character from the Wacky Packages series of trading cards. When the lid is down, the character stares idiotically at the user. When the lid is lifted, there is another image of this lovable fellow--but NOW his eyes are CLOSED, so as to politely avoid embarassing the toilet's user. These images were painted and signed by me, Wacky Packages artist Jay Lynch, in acrylic paints. After painting the lid on both sides, I sealed it with many coats of polyurethane to make this a usable, cleanable addition to your bathroom or rest room, be it a public or private one. You get the unit in one piece, with the lid affixed to the seat. Included is the necessary hardware to attach it to your favorite toilet bowl. Of course, if you win this sale you can do with the piece as you choose. You could use it as an over sized door knocker if you like...but that would kind of water down the gag. This is an important piece of fine art, yes. But it's also a useful household object as well. The "made in USA" seat and lid are of moulded wood consruction with a white enamel finish. I gessoed the lid on both sides and painted it with acrylic paints before I coated it with polyurethane, though. The photos show the item before the final poly lid coating was applied. I did this to avoid reflection and glare on the photos. This is #1 in a possible series of Wacky sketch toilet seats, and I have numbered it as such (not shown in photos, the number is on the rim on the opposite side of where my signature is). Perhaps other Wacky Packages artists will add other sketch seats to this series. But then again, perhaps they will not. Who can tell with "fine art?" Will this be a modern day continuation of the surrealist movement that began in the 1913 New York Armory show? Will modern artists continue where Marcel Duchamp left off with his "A. Mutt" urinal? Who knows? It's up to the public and the critics to decide such things. But I do suggest that, if you win this sale for the piece, that you print out this description and file it with your important papers. This is a 5 day sale. Add $12 to the total for postage and handling costs. Immediate payment is required.
