This vintage Advertising bust for KING GEORGE 1V OLD SCOTCH WHISKY is made from a hardened rubberized compound and is in great condition for age. The writing at base needs a bit of a re-touch with gold paint and there a few small specks of white paint that someone has flicked on it in times past...NOW REMOVED. The colours are bright and vivid and it really is in excellent condition for age. I've dated the piece to 1940-1950 as I believe the more recent ones were made from plastic rather than rubber compound. The Bust stands 8" tall and is 6" in width.
