Bald Bearded Man

Bo/Possible Bo: Classic Average 38D G

Final Price: ___$297___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

     Fivaz/Farnsworth: Alpert, the auction manager, is of the opinion that it is a Bo. Farnsworth has not seen any of Bo抯 carvings with such perfectly created letters 揝S. It is not a self-portrait of Bo; neither the hair nor the nose is of Bo抯 style. This mostly punched specimen is similar to Bo抯 post hand injury works.

Bearded Man Wearing Fedora Hat

Bo/Unknown: Classic Average (L) 20P AG

Final Price: ___$385___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

     Fivaz/Farnsworth: Auction Manager, Alpert believes it is a Bo. Farnsworth stated: 揟he punched eye, the scraggy hair and beard do not appear to me to be Bo抯 style even after his hand injury.

Bearded Man Wearing a Derby

Bert or Unknown: Classic Above Average(L) ND-S II F

Final Price: ___$687.50___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

     Kraljevich/Farnsworth: Pictured and identified as a Bert in Romines second book on page 54. When this carving was QDed in 1997, both Kraljevich and Farnsworth stated that it was done by an unknown artist. In the opinion of the Auction Manager, Alpert, it is a Bert. As of 2007, we have no other corroborating evidence. It was carved by an experienced artist who put a lot of careful work into it. The field is a series of punched small circles. The hair and beard were created by alternating curved chisel lines giving an impression of wavy hair but with no shape or style.
