    hi all,
    I’ve recently acquired this lot from auction. The poor mushroom shaped sculpture was the runt nobody except me wanted!!
    It’s An unusual 20th century white plaster abstract sculpture in the form of a mushroom with pierced and shaped base. Heavy construction. Measures 50cms x 40cms approx. Tool marks visible. I need some assistance in turning this over to look at the base however I’ve been advised there are not evident stamps/ signature.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Kindest Regards and thank you in advance.

    “An unusual 20th century white plaster abstract sculpture in the form of a mushroom with pierced and shaped base. Heavy constuction. (A/F) Measures 50cms x 40cms approx”
    *lots of the auction lots pertained to the modernist movement.

    If it's unsigned, extremely unlikely you'll ever be able to identify artist. My suggestion would be to display and enjoy.
