3300: Howard Chandler Christy Miss America 1925 Bronze

LOT PASSED|ESTIMATE: $7,500 - $10,500|Sell a Similar Item
1925 Howard Chandler Christy ''Miss America 1925'' bronze statue. Sculpture of the 1925 Miss America winner, Fay Lanphier. Acting as a judge for that year's competition, Christy sculpted this piece soon after Lanphier was crowned. Because of the statue's undeniable likeness to Lanphier, the public reacted vociferously to its nudity; though Christy declared that Lanphier never posed for him. An exquisite piece of Miss America history from the pageant's first year broadcast live on the radio. Sculpture, measuring 5'' x 16'', features a smooth, even patina. An intriguing piece in fine condition.
