$500.00 - $1,500. (oils). Pencil & charcoal works priced as marked.
We have a variety of striking framed artworks—most are oils but there are also works in pencil, charcoal, tempera, and ceramic tiles—signed “M. PROSSER” and “M.P. Allen,” and all attributed to the same artist—Margaret Prosser [nee Allen]. We know that the artist was born in 1913, was a professor at the University of Delaware, authored a book on ornamentation in Indian architecture, and passed away in 2007. Her style shows nods to American regionalism of the 1930s, Cubism, East Asian influences, and the works of Thomas Hart Benton and Andrew Wyeth, among others.
Regardless of where you fall on the great pop vs. soda terminology divide (sodapop, anyone?), we’ve now got you covered and then some. Customers have been asking for some type of drinks machine in the Surplus Store—we’ve heard you, and we are now happy to offer a vending machine that offers soda, pop, water, juice, and energy drinks. The vending machine accepts both cash and debit/credit cards. Automatic for the people, yo.
