拍品描述 1777 B. Franklin American Medallion. Terra Cotta. 114.3 mm. 166.2 grams. By Jean-Baptist Nini. Margolis Type 17. About Uncirculated.These pieces were produced with a hole on the upper rim, extending through the upper part of the medal, which originally was provided for a suspension loop, a thin wire hanger now threaded through the hole for suspension. Glowing light red terra cotta fields and design motifs, the high points of the design motifs and legends showing a deeper shade of brick red, the contrast giving this medallion positive eye appeal. The face is quite choice in appearance, with only minor hints of handling in the fragile terra cotta surface. On the back we note a chip at the periphery to the left of the hole that accommodates the wire hanger on this piece, and a small flea bite is noted on the lower edge adjacent to the letters FR of FRANKLIN. Overall, this is an outstanding example of this iconic medallion, with outstanding eye appeal and immense historical significance.These portrait medallions have long been regarded as among the most fascinating contemporary collectables relating to the American Revolution and its great statesman-philosopher Benjamin Franklin. They were produced at Chaumont-sur-Loire, France by the celebrated Italian ceramic artist Jean-Baptiste Nini (1717-1786), and were eagerly purchased by Franklins many admirers throughout Europe. Franklin elicited great interest from the elite Parisians by his rustic, democratic style of dress, notably his "old brown coat" and his martin fur cap, both of which were incorporated into the fad for "Franklin fashions" by the novelty loving populace of the French capital, and are depicted on this plaque, as well.
