Impressive oversized sculpture presented to an American soccer pioneer
Description  

Impressive and very detailed soccer sculpture, of an artistic action-style workmanship, presented to John B. Farrell. Statue measures 26″ tall on its stunning green marble and wood base, and depicts a young boy kicking a soccer ball. 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. Sculpture was presented to Farrell in the late 1800s. A highly skilled player, Farrell was an avid promoter of soccer in the United States. His son, Henry C. Farrell, was a member of the 1924 US Olympic soccer team. Sculpture was later presented to Raleigh DeGeer Amyx by John B. Farrell’s great grand-daughter, Susan Farrell Beatrice. A truly accomplished piece of art regardless— the unique historical background only adds to its appeal.
