Irresistible for any hammer collection, this excellent likeness of an ordinary claw hammer rivals Andy Warhol’s soup can paintings as an example of pop art. The hammer is deeply carved into a piece of pine that is 17 inches long, 7 inches wide and 1 ¾ inches thick. The greatest thickness of the carving is 1 inch, so the relief is high. The representation of an adze eye claw hammer head is remarkable. The plaque was rough cut, with chamfered edges on the top, and has been stained with a walnut finish. It is unique, handsome, and a real conversation piece. I’ve never seen anther. Fine.
