I’ve only ever seen one of these balancing men for sale before, but it wasn’t that long ago, so in my mind it shouldn’t have been too hard to find some information on this fabulous art deco figure, but alas, no such luck – it seems our gentleman is fairly rare! Isn’t he just fabulous though? My heart leaped when I saw the first one for sale a few months back, and leaped again when I saw the rather terrifying price tag, so I consider myself very lucky to have found this identical, but far more affordable version. Designed as an ashtray, our strong man is a real feat of engineering balancing the weight of his sky-hook on just one foot! Not only is this a super attractive figure to look at (I wouldn’t recommend using it as an ashtray, he’s too special to have cigarette butts sitting on him!), but he’s also great fun to play with and is sure to impress your guests with his great balancing skills!
Dimensions: 36cm tall x 18cm in diameter (across base)
