More About this Item


Description

This lot consists of a bronze bust of President Kennedy. Present on the bust is the artists signature, "Antonio Salemme," on the back of President Kennedy's neck. As President Kennedy was taken from the world, before his time was up, he is depicted very young. His eyes are kind, however they also appear to be sad. This bust rests on top of a black square base. The base appears to have taken the brunt of the wear with scratches, nicks and chips present. Other than the base, the lot appears to be in good condition with normal wear present.Condition: (Very Good - Excellent).Dimensions: 18" x 6-1/2" x 6".
