SKU: RC0145.

Product Description

A really cool model of Louis Armstrong…

Hand crafted in what we think is clay or a similar material, the model is nicely hand painted and very cleverly built. Perfectly ‘free standing’ at circa 48cm’s high, Louis looks vibrant and happy in this artists depiction of him. This piece is signed and dated by the artist in 1991, on the bottom of the model suggesting it may have been a personal art project or a commission for somebody. Essentially, the piece oozes charm and authenticity

It’s a heavy piece and a true ‘one off’. Great for a music memorabilia collector or equally a great display piece or alternative decor for the home. This is certainly a happy piece to have around and you won’t find another one..

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the piece is in good shape, yet there are some surface marks, scratches and paint chipping. There are a few tatty areas to the build here and there and there is a small area on the hat (as pictured) which has had a small fix and touch up (we think). We don’t believe it is detrimental to the piece. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
