Mid Century Modern Gondola Forcola Wood Abstract Sculpture On Base Italy 1950s:
Absolutely amazing gondola Forcola that was brought back from Italy in the early 1950s. The Forcola is a typical Venetian rowlock, the part of an authentic vintage Italian gondola boat, that the oar rests on and is used to steer the boat. These are works of art and were made very strong as they needed to be put to use daily. The original owner was an avid modern art collector and had an ebonized base made just to fit this piece. The sculpture is in wonderful original condition and has a nice patina. The entire piece stands an impressive 46" tall and the base is 10" x 10". TheForcola itself measures 29" tall and slips out of the slot. It will be shipped seperately from the base to insure a safe delivery. Thank you for looking.
