"Breathing life into clay" is how many collectors describe the exceptional talents of renowned sculptor Dr. Thomas Fetzer Clark. Warmth, wisdom and often a touch of whimsy can be found in the expressive features and intricate detail of this Gnomes, Woodspirits, Country Folk, and historical figurines.
I am selling a personal collection of Tom Clark figurines, about 125 or so in total. For the most part, these are pieces that the consignor purchased new, from dealers. There are a few that the consignor purchased on the secondary market.
This one is "Telly". It is marked TELLY - T CLARK - 1987 - 36 - *1189. This figurine appears to be hand signed by Tom Clark on the side of the television, I don't know if this is an original signature, but the other figurines I have up for sale, do not have this type of signature. This item comes with no Certificate of Authenticity or box, issue price was $80.00. It measures 8 1/2" tall x 6" across. It is in very nice condition, just some little scuffs/wear on a couple of the corners/edges. I dusted him some, but he could use a little more. I have some other Tom Clark figurines, I will be happy to combine shipping.
