A very nice and beautiful Rookwood Pottery bust model number 2026 in ivory velum. She has such a serene expression. It has the Rookwood pottery incise mark and date code , dating the piece to 1921. It is hard to find without any dings or chips.
This was purchased at the estate of Susan Cummings, the mid century movie star, in Chandler, Arizona. Ms. Cummings starred in movie and television shows in the 1950s to 1970s. She starred in the hit movie Verboten as well as An American in Paris and other movies in the 1950s and 1960s. She starred in the Perry Mason, Twilight Zone (the signature episode “To Serve Man”), and Union Pacific, among others in the 1960s and 1970s.
It measures 7 1/2″ tall and is 7 1/2″ wide. It is in good vintage condition, no chips or cracks, some minor surface wear to the back which is not unusual with these finishes from Rookwood.
