These two pieces are from the genius of the late Michael Ricker. They are signed with the Ricker name! The figures depicting a Boy and Dog playing baseball, and is marked handcrafted pewter made in usa with a sticker and both are signed at the bottom. It is in MINT condition.
I have the original order paperwork with both pieces. You can have it. The boy/baseball bat was TC-4 and the small dog was ATC-6. Both were from the Turn of the Century Park series and the paperwork is dated 1975.
The value of Michael Rickers work will continue to increase, as his surviving fans and collectors search for as many of these fabulous sculptures as possible. Due to his passing away I believe that Michael Ricker pewter is an excellent long term investment. Michael Ricker, master sculptor and founder of Michael Ricker Pewter Inc., tragically passed away on January 7, 2006 as a result of complications from a brain aneurysm. Michael Ricker made a profound impact on the pewter industry as a whole, with his imaginative style and expert craftsmanship.
