Memorial Sculpture 
 
    South African War large contemporary chalk ware (plaster) cast bas-relief panel, bronze finish, 25 x 31 inches; depicts three British soldiers full height of panel, two supporting a wounded comrade, with background of other soldiers, guns and unidentified terrain. Basic panel is approx 1 inch thick with relief image up to 1½ inches; overall weight approx 12 Kg. A few minor wear abrasions and chips and a small "ding" at lower right corner, all restorable. Has had an ersatz picture frame wire attached to back, not original and now removed. There is no signature or inscription. Nominal 2 x 2½ foot dimensions suggest this was originally set in a frame and lack of inscription suggests this may have been one of several panels of a larger SA War memorial of some sort. No prevenance except that it was found recently in a Kingston area basement! A unique and rare find would be a magnificent centre piece of a SA War collection or an institutional war memorial. Shipping extra.
$1500.  Catalog Number: 00/123
