Vintage Studio Art Pottery Clay Female Candlestick - Signed 20.5" Tall - Russia?:
This is an unusual piece so nicely done.
The female figure appears in prayer. The clothes remind me of Ukranian or Russian clothes.
The piece is signed, but I can't quite make it out. It looks like Shirl Barb.
The head has a hole to fit a candle.
The clay is almost like a baked brick which has been rolled and had texture added.
The pieces appear to be glued together.
The head is definitely glued, either through a break or because it was done in a different manner than the body.
The piece is huge and heavy. 20.5” tall, 5.5” at the widest.
Weighs 6 pounds, 3 ounces.
I don't see any losses, but please note the way the head is attached. I include close-up photos.
Please review the pictures closely as they are part of the description.
I apologize ahead of time for the cost of shipping. I only ship USPS Priority insured.
