Folk Art Up-Cycled Clown Sculpture

Price: $825.00

Unique Folk Art Up-Cycled Clown Sculpture, 19th and 20th Centuries - a clever combination and merging of several old fragments and salvaged material to create a compelling new artwork. The unknown artist took two pieces of a 19th Century Humpty Dumpty Mechanical Bank (made by the Shepard Hardware Co. of Buffalo, NY in 1884), and utilizing an equally old iron bed spring and heavy gauge copper wire, created a whimsical new three dimensional sculpture... four dimensional really if you give it a tap and set it into motion. The components were used untouched as found, so retain some original paint and uber patina. Tactile and dynamic, this is a small masterpiece of Post Modern Folk Art.

Measures: 10-7/8 in H x 7 in W x 6-1/4 in Deep
