Club house model by Jim PopsoThis is a folk art assemblage by Pennsylvania artist James (Jim) Popso (1922 - 1998). The son of a coal miner, his wonderfully detailed work depicts life in the mines and mine towns. You can read about Popso and his art here and here, and his obituary is here.

This carving depicts the Eckley PA Social Club. There are two men sitting out front, one reading, the other holding a case of beer. The door opens to reveal two more men sitting across from each other, with a large stove between them. Written inside the door is "Pres. Big Mike, Treas. Ohio Joe, Trusty Happy Louie, Guard Slappy Willy, Door Man Ikie, Dues 50¢ a Month, No Ladys". The back has painted flowers and shrubbery. The size is 13 1/4" high by 9 3/4" by 9 3/4". It is in very good condition, probably from the mid 1990's. We have several more pieces by Popso, including one here. Inventory Code: CAKR.   See a slideshow of several views [1 Mb] ...
