It is 14 tall and in superb condition. It is signed John Cassidy RCA 1934. It weighs over 5kg! I have contacted the John Cassidy society and they believe it’s a late piece of his, done after he closed down his studio. Biography John Cassidy was an Irish sculptor and painter who was born in Slane, County Meath. He moved to Dublin at the age of 20 to find work before winning a scholarship to study in Milan. After two years he moved to Manchester where he lived for the rest of his life. He created many public sculptures, especially war memorials and exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Hibernian Academy and in Manchester City Art Gallery. His works include a sculptor of John Rylands and Enriqueta Rylands and Bristol merchant Edward Colston. He died at St Joseph’s Hospital in Whalley Range in 1939 and is buried in Southern Cemetery.
