Thomas Jefferson Statue American President(232 views)
Description: Item # 5740. A rare White Metal Statue of Thomas Jefferson. Size: 23.5" tall on a wood base (diameter 8.75"). Condition: originally painted gold and there is gold paint loss. The wood base is painted black and there is flaking to the black paint; plus scuffs to the surface of the wood. Believed to date from 1876 and made to coincide with the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. There is no artist signature. This model could have been used as a small version for a life size or greater than life size statue of Jefferson. The figure is holding a scroll in his left hand with the text "America Independence". The casting is quite crisp. Jefferson is holding a walking staff in his left hand and he appears to be wearing the French Legion of Honor on his left lapel. He appears to be young in this depiction. We can find no other example of this item on the web. Price $2,500.00.
