This is a rare collectible in every sense of the word. There is no telling how many of the original 500 in the edition still exist today. I have personally seen the poor quality of a few examples sold online previously and I was sad to see other sellers offering examples of inferior condition due to abuse and poor handling.
The original owner and purchaser has kept these in a personal collection. They have been cared for politely in a smoke-free environment.
You may feel free to ask us any question at all about the authenticity, provenance or any other questions you may have.
These exquisite bronzes will be offered with a very nominal reserve of $3,500.00.
