    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Large Wooden Bust by Hallstahammar. 22" x 11" wooden bust by Carl Hallsthammar. Hallsthammar was a Swedish born American sculptor who represented the United States during the 1932 Olympics in an art competition. The medals at the Olympics were given out for sports-related art pieces. Sadly, this piece can not be from those special games due to the obvious subject matter. Nevertheless, this bust of FDR is beautiful. One aspect we like in particular are the distinct markings made by Hallsthammar's tools on the wood, allowing for all to see just how much detail is really included. There are no outstanding issues with the bust itself; however, the stand it sits on has some paint loss with some nicks on the front, right, and left sides. Overall, this piece is in excellent condition.

    Selections from the Collection of Tom Charles Huston.

    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.
