James Thurber Reading Dog Pin/Pendant

  • $78.95

Only 8 left!

What a pedigree: this pup is not only the cover boy/girl of the book of James Thurber’s New Yorker cartoons, but the poster boy/girl for the upcoming exhibition at the Columbus Museum of Art (A mile and a half of lines: the Art of James Thurber). The irresistible image now adorns this sterling silver pin that is also fitted with a loop through which a chain can be threaded—so the pin can be worn both as a brooch and as a necklace (chain not included).  

James Thurber—one of the foremost American humorists of the 20th century—was a writer and a cartoonist, most notably for the New Yorker.  E. B. White and Thurber shared an office there, where they collaborated on their first book, Is Sex Necessary?, which featured a number of Thurber’s cartoons. Thurber dedicated the book to two of his favorite terriers. Thurber said that dogs represent balance, serenity, and are “a sound creature in a crazy world.”

Sterling silver; One inch in diameter. Thurber’s signature is engraved on the back.
