Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very rare and wonderfully whimsical studio pottery wall sculpture by the California ceramicist Hal F. Fromhold. This early 1960's wall hanging contains 11 fanciful figures with their arms in all sorts of expressive and lyrical positions. This piece is in amazing condition and there are no chips, cracks or missing sections. It is fully (and rarely) intact. The figures project a full 7" from front to back. There are 11 figures total...an unusually large count for a Fromhold sculpture. There are significant hanging hooks on the back side for a safe and secure placement.
