Adolf Hitler Bust

Postby Dave_Holden » Sun Mar 31, 2019 12:45 pm

Hello all.

Found this yesterday in Prague. I believe the mounting has been replaced post war as it has a newish looking screw fixing underneath. I will be selling it over on War-Den cheaper due to the mounting. I did see that one has been sold on:

I have no idea what it sold for??

It will be on the site tomorrow.

Cheers

Yes very heavy Pete. I am near certain that the base has been replaced at some time as the screw does look new, maybe the original plinth was lost. This style of bust has been reproduced but all the copies I have seen the detail particularly on the ears, is not fine at all, certainly not quality as the one I have. I will try and find an image on the internet of a copy and you will straight away see the difference.

Definitely see the difference in the quality Dave, and the weight also points to a original.

Normally the repros' are a lot lighter. 4kg :shock:
