Marilyn? Not Sure… But It’s Fabulous, Anyway!

Another piece that I just love!  The pop art style colors are just startling!  

The silhouette, or caricature, or whatever one wants to call it of a beautiful blonde (is she supposed to be Marilyn? I tend to think so), with just a few bold colors on a large sheet of heavy plastic makes for an amazing piece!

The antiques auctioneer I bought it from didn’t know the original purpose of this, but thought perhaps it had been used in advertising.  I also have no idea, but think it would be stunning centered on a bare wall behind a sofa or the head of a bed!

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see more photos (more to come).

Dimensions: About 38″ wide x 33″ high.

Condition: Excellent, except for a couple of minor marks here and there.

FCFS. No holds without payment in advance via PayPal. (I don’t use any other cash or money app.)

Location: These are now at our booth at Hathaway Mill Antiques, 10 Water Street, Waterville ME. Our booth is “HCB”. Hathaway Mill Antiques is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10:00am to 5:00 pm.95.00, which includes Maine State Sales Tax.

Shipping: This would probably be prohibitively expensive to ship because of its size and shape.

**********************************

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  Johnny was an avid reader, who was passionate about the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed, although it has been in hiatus during the pandemic.  I’m hoping to begin working on this again during the spring of 2023. 

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
