    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Desktop Bronze by Bissell. George E. Bissell sculpted this 5.5" tall bronze in 1898. It was cast in New York City by the Gorham Foundry Company. It is so marked, and also has the stamped inscription "G A C 0378". Lincoln has one arm held behind his back, while he clutches a scroll, probably the Emancipation Proclamation, in his other hand. It has a very nice patina and reminds of us of the statues one encounters in parks, only in miniature, and without the pigeons. Along with French and Borglum, Bissell is considered one of the preeminent sculptors of Lincoln.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
