Rare Vintage '30s Wpa Painted Wax American Highland Cow Bull Folk Art Figurine For Sale

Rare Vintage '30s Wpa Painted Wax American Highland Cow Bull Folk Art Figurine

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO ACQUIRE A COLLECTION OF 8 ORIGINAL HANDMADE PAINTED WAX ANIMAL FIGURINES MADE DURING THE DEPRESSION UNDER THE AUSPICIES OF WORKERS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION. THEY COME DIRECTLY OUT OF THE NEW YORK ESTATE OF MOGUL, PENNY MARSHALL. THIS sale IS FOR: : ORIGINAL WPA HANDMADE PAINTED WAX "HIGHLAND COW" ANIMAL FIGURINE

THESE ARE JUST AMAZING PIECES. MOST ARE STAMPED WITH A STAMP READING:

"ASSISTANCE IN THE PREPARATION OF THIS MATERIAL WAS FURNISHED BY THE UNITED STATES WORK PROJECTS ADMINISTRATION - OFFICIAL PROJECT NUMBER.........."

IN DOING RESEARCH, I WAS ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THAT THESE TYPE OF THINGS WERE BEING MADE BY ARTISANS AND CRAFTSMEN HIRED BY THE WPA. I HAVE HANDLED MANY PAINTINGS AND PRINTS DONE UNDER THE WPA, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO HANDLE ANY OF THE CRAFTWORK. FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN, MOST OF IT IS EITHER DESTROYED OR IN MUSEUMS. YOU CAN FIND AN OCCASIONAL HANDMADE DOLL ON THE MARKET AND A FEW OF THE PLASTER FIGURINES OUT THERE BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS. THESE ARE ACTUAL PIECES OF FOLK ART THAT WERE USED FOR TEACHING AND DISPLAY IN SCHOOLS, LIBRARIES, AND MUSEUMS. THE BEST REFERENCE PIECE I HAVE FOUND IS FROM THE DENVER LIBRARIES DIGITAL COLLECTION AND IS A GREAT PHOTO OF 2 ARTISTS WORKING ON SIMILAR TYPE FIGURINES FOR THE COLORADO MUSEUM DURING THE 1930s align="center" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: small;">THIS ONE IS A WONDERFUL HIGHLAND COW. PAINTED WOOD BASE MEASURES4 1/2X12 INCHES AND STANDS6 1/2INCHES AT ITS TALLEST. INREALLY VERY GOOD CONDITION. GREAT ORIGINAL PAINT AND COLORING.THE BODY IS IN PERFECT CONDITION. THE ONLYISSUE AT ALL IS BOTH THE HORNS HAVE BEEN BROKEN AT SOME POINT AND SHOW SOME CRACKS AND MINOR LOSS-- EASILY RESTORABLE OR LEFT AS IS.REALLY A WONDERFUL ANIMAL. EACH ONE WAS COMPLETELY HANDMADE AND IS AN INDIVIDUAL PIECE OF A AMERICAN FOLK ART. THIS ONE IS NOT STAMPED ON THE BOTTOM BUT GUARANTEED TO BE AN ORIGINAL - WITH ORIGINAL PAPER LABEL AND PENCIL WRITING. DONT MISS THIS PIECES. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK MY LISTINGS FOR THE OTHER 7 ANIMALS I AM SELLING. ADD ONLY $5.00 MORE FOR S&H&I FOR EACH ADDITIONAL WAX FIGURINE YOU WIN.

CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE. DONT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING AND INSURANCE CAN BE CALCULATED. ALL ITEMS ARE BEING SOLD AS IS. PICTURES ARE AN EXCELLENT INDICATION OF CONDITION. CHECK MY response AND YOU WILL SEE THAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY. I GENERALLY SHIP ONCE A WEEK SO PLEASE BE PATIENT. IT TAKES TIME TO MAKE SURE ALL OF THIS ART AND ANTIQUES ARRIVE SAFELY. PLEASE DONT HESITATE TO EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY offerDING.
