RARE 1930-40S MICHELIN MAN (BIBENDUM) BAKELITE GREEN AND CREAM ASHTRAY
This Michelin Man or Bibendum ashtray is a rare example as it has a dark green bakelite base and dates from the 1930-40s. It is in very good and probably unused condition with no chips or cracks and measures ca 13cms wide by 15 deep and 12 high.
The figure must have been made constructed in 2 parts as there are what look to be file marks on the seam where there has been overlap at the join.......see final two pics.
The underside of the base is stamped MADE IN ENGLAND.
