Impressive oversized sculpture presented to an American soccer pioneer
Description  

Impressive and very detailed sculpture of a young boy kicking a soccer ball, measuring 26″ tall on a stunning green marble and wood base. Work is signed in the base, “Carher,” and is also stamped, “Made in Paris, France.” Black wooden base has a hand-engraved presentation plaque, which reads: “Presented to John B. Farrell by the Football Association of E.P.&D., in appreciation of his services to soccer.” In fine condition, with some minor dings and chips to bottom portion of wooden base, but not to the marble or artwork itself. A highly skilled player and an avid promoter of soccer in the United States, Farrell was presented with this beautiful sculpture in the late 1800s. He passed his passion for the sport down to his son, Henry C. Farrell, who went on to play for the 1924 US Olympic soccer team. This sculpture comes from the collection of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx, who received it from John B. Farrell’s great-granddaughter, Susan Farrell Beatrice. An expertly crafted and beautifully presented piece of sports history.
