Sporting a cane and top hat. Full of movement and life - has one back leg tucked under - makes me think he is dancing.
Fine mix of materials and construction - crystal clear lucite head - riveted on, carved black bakelite body and cane, painted top hat band, glass eye, and brass or brass toned metal pin back. True rare authentic vintage / antique piece.
Ready and waiting for your lapel, collection, or gift giving - You will love it! The black body is Simichrome & rub and smell test negative for bakelite as some, if not most, black can. Does have the look, feel, sound and weight of bakelite. Can also clearly see carving marks - so I have very little doubt.And if on the off chance that it is not bakelite - a very close relative like French bakelite, g. None that I could find. Aprox 3 1/4" high or tall x 1 3/4" wide - black body or thickest element is about 3/8 thick. CONDITION : Great vintage condition - no damage or quirks to mention. Pin back in good working order.
No breaks, chips, etc - paint on the top hat band is 99% or more intact - no damage to be found at all. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren't considered damaged.I will try my best to note anything glaring or distracting.
