Very Rare English Art Deco Outsider Art Watch Stand Figure of Comic Strip Glamour-Girl Jane by Norman Pett



This very rare and relatively large art watch stand is probably an Outsider or Trench Art piece. It is in the form of a cut-out of Norman Pett's famous glamour-girl/pin-up, Jane who starred in her eponymous comic strip in England's Daily Mirror newspaper during World War 2. She is dressed in one of her signature revealing nightgowns and has a hole drilled through her raised hand that would have originally held a hook (now missing) to suspend a pocket watch.. It appears to be cut out from nickel-plated metal with the details etched into the surface and is supported by a walnut wrapped rod capped nickel plated domes.
