    Description

    Humanitarian Award to Lucille Ball, 1973. A charming and very meaningful award given to Lucy, the plaque reads "To Lucille Ball -- Humanitarian Award 1973 Sunair Home for Asthmatic Children." The appealing statue (created by Mersy) presents a little girl hand-in-hand with a little boy, the girl holding flowers, the boy holding a cat; statue is mounted on a 2" x 10" wooden base. The year 1973 was a busy time for Lucy -- she was still starring in TV's Here's Lucy, as well as filming Mame (the shooting of which, said Lucy, was "about as much fun as watching your house burn down"). That she still took time that demanding year to earn Sunair's Humanitarian Award speaks highly of her energy and commitment. The award is in Excellent condition. This lot will be accompanied by a letter of provenance from Susie Morton as the widow of Gary Morton, Ms. Ball's second husband. The lot is not offered by the estate of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
