Inotal Aluminium Works Statue.

Postby Dave_Holden » Sat Jun 02, 2018 5:03 pm

Hello all.

I was at the monthly Budapest Arms Fair today - better than it used to be but not much to write home about. Picked up this aluminium statue, typical communist era, quality not nice but it was just 10 Euro. I like this sort of stuff from metal works as it reminds me of my welding days. Its says at the bottom in Hungarian - "Inotal Aluminium Works". I found an old photo of the works that are still here, founded in 1952.

I have no idea why this statue was made but its a nice lump of aluminium - if you like that sort of thing :thumbsup:

Perhaps a competition or retirement piece..? The Socialists were big on rewarding factory output, but it doesn't look like any kind of "official" award as such, maybe a sample to showcase what the factory could do? It will sit well in your statue collection though Dave..!
