3300: Howard Chandler Christy Miss America 1925 Bronze

Lot 3300 View Catalog

Description

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.
