Along the bottom border is marked "Forty Years at your service" 1882-1922". Also along the border is signed "Gorham".Maxfield Parrish did much artwork for the Edison Lighting Company. He did the artwork for such things as calendars, and signs. He loved the mysterious and the whimsy. Nobody else could have, or would have done the artwork for these bronzes. Having Gorham, one of the best American foundries, do the casting is like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig on your team. These were obviously given to the companies, stores, and the like, for carrying their products. A nice incentive, to be sure. The one character is carrying a light bulb, (which I have seen some people use as a ring holder) If you are a fan of Maxfield Parrish, this should really excite you, and if you don't know who Parrish is, you should look up some of his artwork. He was a genius, and his paintings sell for well over 6 figures. His lithographs are still out there, and they do range in price. Meanwhile these bronzes are rare, and you would be lucky to obtain this.Material:Bronze
