Pryor bowl gets snapped up by casino
Golden Palace has done it again. A ceramic bowl decorated by the late great comedian Richard Prior as been sold to online casino Golden Palace for just over USD7,000.
The online casino has made a habit of buying all manner of weird and wonderful objects from the eBay auction site including a toasted cheese sandwich with an image of what looked like the Virgin Mary. The bowl was originally placed on the site to fund an animal welfare organisation.
Pryor sent the piece to the Geauga County Humane Society weeks before his death on Dec. 10. He was 65 and had been ill for years with multiple sclerosis.
Pryor painted a self-portrait inside the bowl with the words "Little Black Man in Big White World." The side of the bowl contains Pryor's signature and drawings of a martini glass, lips and a cigarette.
