Description

Handsome plaster bust of Abraham Lincoln created by Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borglum, measuring approximately 7.5" tall, 5.25" wide, and 5" deep, with his signature and date etched into the right side: "Gutzon Borglum, 1912." A fragment of granite stone is inset in the base, perhaps derived from one of Borglum's colossal works. In very good to fine condition, with a few minor flecks and chips to the bronze-patina paint.
