THOMAS MOLESWORTH

“JACK RABBIT” ASHSTAND


circa 1938

patinated iron

35¾ in. (90.8 cm) high

Overall in very good condition. The metal surfaces present with some scattered extremely minor surface scratches and abrasions throughout, consistent with age and use. The ashtray coupe is removable and presents with some very minor residue to the interior of the coupe. A very charismatic and sculptural work.
