(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original antique W. W. Hixson & Co. postcard from the 1910s. It shows a view of the bronze statue of Tadeusz Kościuszko, American Revolutionary War hero, outside the West Wing of the Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio.
Kościuszko was a Polish army officer and statesman. This statue was sculpted by Gaitano Trentanove and dedicated on May 8, 1905. It is eight feet high, and stands on a pedestal that is 12 feet high. Clevelanders of Polish descent conceived and paid for the work.
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
