As you may know, we own the original of Nelson Eddy‘s excellent lifesize sculpture of the famous Chinese-American movie star, Anna May Wong. Although the sculpture is undated, we have a photo of Nelson working on it, and it would appear to be around 1947 or so. Although – on the back of it, Nelson signed his initials and then made a line of 4 dots, a space, then 3 dots. We don’t know whether this means 43, as in 1943?
We did offer this years ago and sold exactly one replica of it. Recently we’ve had some requests for it again but needed a few orders to cover the costs of prep work and a new molding to make it available again.
We have had enough interest to resume the project…and will offer it for this pre-launch at the same price as the other Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald limited edition busts and can ship worldwide. The bust is lifesize but actually a larger piece because more of Ms. Wong’s torso is sculpted – not just a head shot. Many who have seen it think it is Nelson’s best sculpture.
