Description



Attributed to Shields 5th Avenue, this 10"-tall department-store decorative shows brilliant colors and considerable wet-look gloss. The rectangular basket on the Bum’s back has ample space for cigarettes, the right side pocket is ready for some stick matches, and the ashtray openings are found at the droopy pants and on top of the base. Exemplary EX-MT appearance is remarkable for such a delicate keepsake. There's typical light crazing on the white portion of the base and about 10 tiny flecks of paint missing on and below the right arm. Otherwise, a bold, clean beauty!
