Seller: mmuullee (1,719) 100%, Location: Melville, New York, Ships to: US, Item: 252650969547 The Favored Scholar Plaster, Painted ; height 21 inches Signed JOHN ROGERS/NEW YORK Patented April 1, 1873 The young man, a school teacher, is busy explaining a sum on a slate to a pretty, demure young lady standing attentively at his side. It is obvious that there is some personal interest in the instructor’s attitude. A boy sitting on a bench out of sight of the teacher surreptiously peeks around the corner of the desk and tries to distract her by putting paper curls on his ears to tease. This was a very liked group, for its subject and is perfect for the teacher. The group was given a light coat of lacquer many years ago. Any questions, please email. Buyer pays S/H/I. PAYPAL accepted. Other groups available.
