Plaster George Washington Bust PP Caproni Houdon Style
Item Details
Description
Plaster George Washington Bust PP Caproni Houdon Style. White Plaster Bust of George Washington on an integral turned socle, with Washington depicted wearing Roman dress - a charming anachronism. What appears to be a white surface wash is worn in many places, giving an appropriate feeling of antiquity. Oval insignia toward bottom of rear appears to be a version of the mark used by Pietro Paulo Caproni (1862-1928) of PP Caproni & Brother, known for their plaster reproductions from a life mask of Washington himself, taken by Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828).

Dimensions are 29 in h x 19.5 in w x 11 in d. Condition is fair, with significant surface wear and some chipping throughout. Please call or email for a detailed condition report.
