THE FRANKLIN MINT

ISSUED AND SOLD IN 1977

"Foaling" Pewter Sculpture

By: Don Polland

Limited Edition

The Franklin Mint " Foaling "

A wild mustang mare tenderly and zealously standing watch over her newborn foal while a curious prarie dog looks out of his burough to checkout the new arrival. This is a Limited Edition 1977 Franklin Mint original cast in fine pewter, finished by hand. The base measures 6.5" x 3.5"

This sculpture is one in a set of four created by Don Polland exclusively for the Franklin Mint. See my other listings for the other three. Don Polland, like the many characters he portrayed in his sculpture, was a pioneer. As early as 1959 he broke with tradition by executing his western sculpture in miniature scale (most of his designs are under 8" high), which made his work much more affordable, and certainly easier to display in the average home. In 1973, when Polland joined forces with Chilmark, a new era in art of the American West began, as his work was now produced in fine pewter, as well as bronze. With well over 100 individual designs to his credit. Don Polland had invested over thirty-five years of his life to an art form and a body of work that has integrity and permanence. Don has earned his place next to Remington, Russell and Fraser, and contemporary artists such as McCarthy and Beeler . He is a true American Original!
