Red Skelton's "Freddie at Your Service" and Red Skelton's "Freddie's Friendship" asking $525 for each piece or will negotiate a price for the purchase of both.
Red Skelton's time after ending his television program was spent making personal appearances on his artwork. His artwork of clowns was a hobby until 1964 when his wife, Georgia, convinced him to have a showing of his work at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas while he was performing there. Sales of his originals were successful and Skelton also sold prints and lithographs of them. It is believed that
Red Skelton had earned more money through his paintings than from his television work. Skelton believed his life's work was to make people laugh; he wanted to be known as a clown.
We are selling two signed, numbered, beautifully framed pieces of Red Skelton framed lithograph clowns that we have enjoyed since 1996. We purchased these pieces in Las Vegas Nevada from Addi Galleries and still have the original receipts. Since moving to Florida, we no longer have space with which to display these beautiful pieces and would love to see them go to a good home. Both pieces are mint condition. No nicks, cracks, marks etc.
Each piece measures l7 1/2 by 19 3/4 surrounded by white with dark blue matting in a cherry wood frame. Each completely framed piece measures 26 3/4 x 30 3/4. We are willing to sell separately. Thank you for looking.
