It does NOT get more ENGLISH, than this Beefeater Advertising Figurine.
An impressive 40" tall standing Yeoman Warder, advertising London Dry Gin at it's best. A beautiful, quality piece, great design and striking colors, looking like the real Royal Bodyguard of Her Majesty. This unique advertising piece is made of lightweight, molded material, standing on a base of 16" diameter, which has a metal sign attached with the company name on it.
WHY Beefeater? Nobody REALLY knows, but there are different theories, where I like this one.
It could have originated in the French language as " BUEFFETIER", Which was the person, who served at the King's table as a FOOD Tester and as a BODYGUARD.! But there are several more interesting Theories to read up on.
