Vintage 1934 Franklin D. Roosevelt Bronze Bust - Famed Sculptor Jo Davidson For Sale
Pretty cooland very rare estate sale find here in Washington, D.C. area....
Presumably bronze vintage original 1934 bust of President Franklin D. Roosevelt from famed sculptor Jo Davidson.
As seen.. Item is in overall very good shape and is mounted on its original medal stand though its loosely on (it will display on the stand butneeds to be "jiggled a bit" and could use to be secured better - I will leave that to the new owner) .
Whats really cool is that this item is also accompanied by areally neat framedand very rare 5" x 7" b/w photo of Mr. Davidson standing next tothe original plaster model for this very FDR bronze bust he designed and will be included as a pair justas it wasacquiredfrom the estate.
From a quick peak on the internet shows Mr. Davidson being the designor of two of President Roosevelts "Official Inaugural medals" (1941 and 1945) among his other credits.
Item is quite heavy.. (roughly3 lbs alone) about 10" tall in total (with the bust measuring about 6" in size).. I have taken as many photos as I could (bust is signed Jo Davidson on back withdate 1934) to give you a good idea what it looks like.. Selling it as I bought it 'as is' but do guarantee its not some modern 'knock off' but is the real deal as described to the best of my ability.
