    Sculptural Cheesecake.

    Patriotic Saluting Lady Display Piece. Here at Heritage, we like to offer the rare and unusual and, if it happens to be a "fun" piece, so much the better! A case in point is this 40" tall composition figure "in the round" of a bathing beauty holding an American flag and saluting. She wears a military style cap with three inlaid blue rhinestones. We date this piece to the World War II period, but are unsure of its purpose. It may have been used as "window dressing" in a department store window or used at a bond fundraiser. In any event, it was sure to draw attention! There is some minor chipping to the tip of the flag pole and the flag and partial loss to three fingers of the right hand which necessitates the inclusion of a ribbon so that the pole remains secure in the lady's grasp. On the whole, she's in great shape!
