Ruscha Torero Decor Plate
Description: Ruscha was one of the rulers of the wall plate kingdom in the 1950's, and Torero is one of their fairly hard to find classics. Very mid century in style, like much work from the 50's, it also pulls from Art Deco and Cubist styles to a degree, a real "Deco Echo" item with additional style echoes.
Although there were patterns for these designs for artists to work from, each one is incised by hand, and the outcome can vary, sometimes by intent, sometimes not. Items are typically initialed by the artist, but most artists names remain unknown so far.
Dimensions: Diameter is about 8 1/2".
Form: 717 with relative size number 1 1/2.
Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
Price: $65 plus shipping and insurance. The hanger is included, but the plate stand is not.
Shipping: $8.95 for Priority Mail and insurance within the US.
International shipping rates by request.
To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191.
We'll confirm that the item is still available, make sure we agree on the total, and answer any questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments).
We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.
If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.
Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
Not just the usual suspects.
(Cats and batteries not included.)
