Thanks to your interest in this excellent likeness of Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong, we are now offering a limited edition replica!
This original bust is larger than the Nelson and Jeanette busts because Nelson sculpted part of Anna’s dress (see the picture). So it costs us more to manufacture it than the other two busts which is why the price is different.
Anna May Wong is life size and initialed by Nelson Eddy on the back. In the photo showing Nelson with the original, from his hair style it would appear that it was circa 1947; however, underneath Nelson’s initials on the original bust, there is a line of 4 dots, a space, then 3 dots. We don’t know what this means but possibly 43… as in, 1943?
Your delivery time for this item will be approximately 6 weeks. This is because the foundry needs to make a new mold first and then make the actual bust afterwards. (And this is the time frame they gave us.) The Anna May Wong bust is being cast in the same chip-proof stone-filled resin as the Nelson and Jeanette busts. However – the original Anna May Wong is an ivory-whitish color – whereas the Nelson and Jeanette heads were bronze color. We have the option to order the Anna May Wong replicas made either in the same “white” color or the bronze cold cast (like Nelson and Jeanette).
IMPORTANT: Please specify whether you would prefer either white or bronze color for your Anna May Wong bust. When you put this item in your shopping cart, please note it in the “comments” section your preference.
Note: our photos of these busts do not do the sculptures justice. It is difficult to photograph them “in person” and capture the real look of them. They are quite striking “in person”.
