Rare John Scholl sculpture

Rare John Scholl (American 1827-1916) sculpture, with three tiers of colonnades supporting elaborate decorated cornices, all painted red, white, and blue, resting on a pedestal supported by a shelf and four downward-sloping brackets and shoe feet. 75" h. Scholl worked in Schuylkill Co. Pennsylvania c. 1900-1915. After retirement he started whittling toys, wall plaques, and free-standing sculptures. This floor-standing example is very typical of his best work. His entire collection was purchased by the noted collectors Adele Earnest and Cordelia Hamilton and exists now in major collections, including the Smithsonian, the American Folk Art Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Provenance: A private collector, David Wheatcroft.
