Item specifics

Seller notes: See pics.
Medium: Metal Date of Creation: 1970-1989
Subject: Figures/ Nudes Country/Region: UK
Largest Dimension: 12" - 24"


A rare welded metal sculpture after Kenneth Rowden, the North East sculptor.
This is a figure of a man with specs, pipe, moustache & flat cap holding a clipboard & pen with crook & sickle to his side. He is propping himself up on a garden fork & has a oil lamp on a stick behind him so at a guess I would say he has some agricultural/gardening significance. Stands on a rectangular wooden plinth base.
Although I can't see a signature to the piece if you see his works this is almost identical in style & I have added some pictures of other sculptures for comparison.
Kenneth Rowden produced his unique creations in a hut next to his Easington home & many of Ken's artworks were exhibited at the Metal Art Precinct in South Shields. He also has produced commission pieces for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Bede's World among others, I have added some links to the listing so info on these can be viewed.

A very striking & delicate sculpture & most likely a commission piece so an opportunity to own a unique item in very good condition. Weighs 2646g unpacked.

Measures approx: 59cm High inc plinth ~ 27.5cm Base Plinth Length ~ 16.5cm Base Plinth Width

Postage charges are based on an estimated packed weight, once packed if I have over-estimate the packed weight of your item/s I will refund the difference.
I do incorporate an additional charge on top of actual postage costs due to having to purchase & source packaging material, this is usually between £1-£1.50 but this is dependent on the quantity of packaging used, so for larger or more delicate items this may be slightly more. Please make sure you are happy with my postage costs before making a purchase. 
I always retain proof of postage, put a sales invoice within the parcel & add my return address externally.
I will always combine P&P for multiple purchases, please wait until I combine your invoice before paying for your items.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS; I post worldwide using Royal Mail Airmail Small Packets, this is not a tracked/signed for service.  Items being posted internationally have size & 2kg weight restriction so if multiple items are purchased they may have to be sent in multiple parcels.
