  45. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 7 months ago
    This isn't at all marked or signed as the original was, can you get a close up? The originals were marked very boldly on the back side of both eyes.
  46. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    THIS IS SIGNED ! http://www.ebay.com/itm/LARGE-BENNINGTON-POTTERS-DAVID-GIL-LADY-HANGING-FACE-W-SCREW-EYES-UNIQUE-1960S-/111159155328?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19e19a1a80
  47. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    Not always!!
  48. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 7 months ago
    Yes it is and the depth of the back where it was poured into the mold is the right depth. Perhaps what you have here is an early one before he moved into the barn.
  49. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    Thankyou fhrjr2:)
  50. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 7 months ago
    By the way they are still in business and are putting out about 500 pieces a day. If you sent the pictures to them they would probably be more than glad to date and value it for you. The business has really grown since I was born and raised there but the people are still Vermonters and always willing to share what they know.
  51. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    Many Thanks fhrjr2 for your help and sharing this with me and I will do that email them pictures of this :) They have some great items and was on there website:)
  52. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 months ago
    Really? Don't want to trade me for this? I have no idea why...but I would...
  53. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 months ago
    Hee hee
  54. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 7 months ago
    Don't believe all that hype they write about him. His work is very collectable but back in the day, like most artists he was seen locally as a bit of a nut case.
  55. Roycroftbooksfromme1 Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 months ago
    ifin you go in to the barn Sean ,dont beleave what the sheep tell ya ...lol
  56. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    LOL Amberrose:) lol fhrjr2:) oh my Roy:) lol!!!
  57. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 7 months ago
    Vermont is a dairy state, no sheep. When David Gil was in his start up cows outnumbered people in Vermont. Vermont cows don't kiss and tell hehehehe :)
  58. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 months ago
    Got any lava W German?
  59. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 months ago
    LOL:) fhrjr2. no hot lava here amberrose:)
  60. Roycroftbooksfromme1 Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 months ago

    I'm a bit lost with the Throwback Weekend.
    October 16, 2011
    Colleen Brenton
    A ‘visit Lambeau Field’ experience ....

    I thought you already had this? Throwback?

    Found reference to the Packers and Cheeseheads getting together.

    Lost in the translation. Sorry!
