Bust of Charles Dickens
Bust of Charles Dickens made in British Gypsum Plaster.
As with all Famous Faces there are objects around the base. For this bust we have included scenes from the tales of Dickens and Victorian England.
The etch around the base reads
“IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES ”
The most popular British novelist of the Victorian era, Dickens would often serialize his novels - lending them a particular rhythm, punctuated by cliff-hangers to keep the public on tenterhooks.
Height - 12.5cm
