W. Colbourne Baber, by whom presented to the Garrick Club, 1951
1924 London, R. A. (1555) ?
Toft exhibited a bronze bust of Seymour Hicks at the Royal Academy in 1905 (1687). That bust is reproduced in “Pall Mall Magazine Pictures of 1905” (p. 96), and shows a much younger man than does S0020. It is probable that S0020 relates to the 1924 bust, although it may be a third bust of the sitter.
