Offered for sale is a vintage Sebastian miniature figurine of Abraham Lincoln, circa 1976-1981. Hand cast in *ceramastone and hand painted, it measures approximately 3 3/4" high x 2” diameter base. Inscribed on the front of the base is “Abraham Lincoln” and on back is impressed “Copr. 1947, P.W. Baston”. The blue label on the bottom is partially torn, but I'm sure it is the same as others made in Hudson, MA. This figurine is in excellent condition. A nice little collectible!
*Ceramastone was a high-quality plaster-like casting material in which Sebastians were cast for close to fifty years. Def: Sebastianworld
