circa 1950

ebony

incised A Noll

41 1/4 x 11 x 5 1/2  in. (104.7 x 27.9 x 13.9 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The ebony presents with surface and texture irregularities inherent to the handmade process and to the artist’s wood selection. The ebony presents with a beautiful, dark coloration when viewed firsthand and with a highly sculptural presence. The sculpture includes both smooth and carved ebony surfaces with irregularities inherent to the artist's technique. The wood with stable hairlines throughout possibly inherent to production. Some of the smooth ebony surfaces with light surface scratches throughout and occasional very minor edge abrasions, not visually distracting.
