I can't count the number of Shakespeare busts that I've seen in second-hand/
junk stores -- though they're usually priced at more than I would be willing to
pay.  You might be better off trying this market than newer museum shops.
 
I've always fancied having a bust of Jonson to go with my Herford and Simpson,
but I suspect busts of Ben are rarer than hens' teeth.

In response to Paul Castillo, Jr.'s query about where to find a bust of
Shakespeare for purchase:  A couple of weeks ago, the gift shop at the Alabama
Shakespeare Festival had several lovely ones of two different varieties. The
Theatre complex there is beautiful, by the way, and well worth the trip.
Current rep shows are 1 Henry VI, shown in conjunction with Shaw's *Saint
Joan*, Much Ado, Night of the Iguana, and The Circle. The number for the ASF
Box Office is 1-800-841-4273. I'm sure they could put you in touch with the
gift shop there in the complex if you'd like to inquire about ordering by mail.
And the new brochures are out for next season--their 25th anniversary.
 
Hope this helps.
A loyal ASF fan.

Yes Paul Castillo jnr.
 
If you spend a night or two at the Hilton Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon they
might place a chocolate bust of Shakespeare on the table before you.  On
sunny days it perspires!
 
One word of warning...don't eat the chocolate!
 
Best wishes,
John Drakakis

They have several busts from about 4 inches to ones that are approximately life
sized at the the Tudor Guild gift shop of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  I
didn't look at them this year, but I think the prices range from about $25 for
the smallest to $100 for the largest. The shop is nonprofit and returns much of
the money back to the festival to support productions.

The Toscano (I think I've got the spelling right) Gallery in Chicago has
replicas of the Huntington bust--in two different sizes.  They also have a
reproduction (about 16"x20") of the wonderful Folger Library window based on
Jacques' All the World's a Stage speech. I'm sure they have an 800 number which
you can easily get.

Paul,
 
I was at the Folger last year and I saw in the small room in the gift area a
small selection of Bard Busts.  By small I mean about 4" tall.  I remember my
dad having a bust, now in pretty bad shape, but I have no idea where he got it.
I know, no help to you, but at least you know they exsist.

There is a shop in Stratford-upon-Avon (on the Market Square) that sells
little Shakespeare busts--made of Welsh coal-

In response to Paul Castillo, Jr.'s search for a bust of the bard:  I know that
the Shakspeare Theater in Washington, D.C. sold busts in the lobby.  The bust
was a small one (maybe 6 inches high), but was inexpensive.  Perhaps someone in
D.C. could check for us?  Hope this helps!

My wife ordered a Shakespeare bust from the Folger Library two years ago, a
dark aged-bronze-look piece about eight or ten inches high. A definite sense
of earthiness to it; I like it. She says Folger also offered a small statue.

No busts here, but I know where you can get a really nice pillow of the Bard's
bust (if that makes sense.)  Let me know if you're interested and I'll stop by
the store and get the particulars (price, who made it, etc.)
