Monumental American Statue
An impressive carved granite figure of Industry, clothed in classical robes, with the attributes of ancient industry at her feet: anvil, hammer and the cogwheel symbolizing 19th-century mechanized production above, American, ca. 1880. 96 ins. overall height (including integral base), 38 ins. wide, 27 ins. deep; base 26 ins. square.
Provenance: From Bolton, MA estate. By repute, salvaged in the 1950s from an architectural facade in Massachusetts.
Barbara says, "A carved stone statue of this quality is very rare indeed—she's not for just any garden but can provide a significant statement in a large garden or at the end of a long allée".
