This strikingly bold portrait you are about to bid on is an original 1950s handmade enamel on copper by a very talented American artist (20th Century) . A shiny, turquoise coating of enamel serves as the background for a caricature style female. With the illustrative markings which make up her hair and facial expression, the era is set in place - the coiffure is typical 1950's style hair and the simplicity of the gestures in her face are reminiscent of the time period's magazine drawings. The blue behind the figure is textured and washy, giving it the allusion of being a watercolor, in contrast to her hair which is more thickly glazed. This masterfully made ceramic work will be a wonderful addition to any collection. We are proud to offer this work to our eBuyers in a true No Reserve $9.99 Auction! Don't miss your chance to own it today!

The image measures 5" x 6" and 10" x 11" in a beautiful custom made frame provided free of charge to our clients. Condition report:
