Description:
Sir George James Frampton, R.A. (1860-1928) Peter Pan unsigned bronze, dark brown patina, on an alabaster plinth fronted by a plaque relief cast with rabbits 14 in. (35.6 cm.) high, the figure, 22 in. (56 cm.) high, overall By family repute from the artist, acquired in the 1930s and by descent to the present owner. The present charming statuette of Peter Pan, is a reduction after the life-size bronze exhibited by Frampton at the Royal Academy in 1911 and erected by an anonymous donor in Kensington Gardens the following year. The statue stands at the spot where, as recounted in Barrie's Little White Bird, Peter Pan lands for his nightly visits to the Gardens and where he pipes to the spirits of the children that have played there. Its popular appeal led Frampton to produce a bronze reduction of the main figure as an independent statue and 19 in. high reductions are known dated 1913, 1916 and 1925. The present version places Pan atop an alabaster pedestal fronted by a plaque recalling the bronze rock upon which the original stands, which is inhabited by a host of fairies, rabbits and other woodland creatures. The fine bronze detailing of the present statuette indicates foundry skill consistent with the period of the original, but the angular alabaster pedestal suggests the Art Deco style and might date this cast to the late 1920s or 1930s.

Description:
monogrammed: GF and dated 1918 and inscribed with an encircled PP bronze, mid-brown patina, on veined green marble base CATALOGUE NOTE In 1911 an anonymous donor commissioned George Frampton to create a sculpture of Peter Pan to be placed on the very spot in Kensington gardens where the magical boy appears nightly in J M Barrie's Little White Bird of 1901, the first book in which the character appears. In fact the anonymous donor was the author himself. He had the bronze erected in secret on 29th and 30th 1912, so that it would seem to have magically appeared. Frampton exhibited the model at the Royal Academy in 1911. In writing his tales of Peter Pan J M Barrie was inspired by a family of boys - the Llewelyns. George Llewelyn was the inspiration for the character of Peter Pan, and Frampton used his brother Michael as the inspiration for his sculpture. In the full scale monument Peter Pan is lifted up on a swirling rock populated by fairies, bunny rabbits, squirrels and mice. He raises his pipe to his mouth and plays to the spirits of the children who play in the park. Frampton's sprightly Peter proved to be a perennially popular model and casts of the monument are to be found as far afield as Brussels, New Jersey, Toronto and Perth, Australia. Parts of the original plaster model are in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Following its immediate popular appeal, Frampton produced a bronze reduction of the main figure as an independent statuette.

J.M. Barrie, the author of the play first performed in 1904, was responsible for the commission, and the public statue has a beguiling mixture of fairies, squirrels and mice running across its rocky base.
