Ten-hut!


The origin of ten-hut! is attention! Ten-hut! is two bursts instead of three. The origin of this small carved sandstone bust is Tippletown, Pa. The artist was Earnest Cavelett. It's so finely carved you can clearly see the difference between the two buttons on the collar.

  1. I don't own it, Joey (sigh). It's pretty expensive. But I can put you in touch with the owner.

  2. Looks a little like G.W.B.- probably the nearest he ever came to serving the country . .

  3. Yes, Suzan, there is a resemblance.
