    Description

    "Frankenstein's Monster" life-size figure from Vintage Gems of London. In 1964, Gems of London produced this wonderful 59 x 33 x 32 in. seated Frankenstein figure, which served as a novelty for photo ops at many museums. The Gems' mold for the iconic head was destroyed during a flood, so original copies are hard to find. This figure features an original head complete with hand-punched hair and glass eyes, original body, hands and full costume. The wax head has been carefully restored and repainted by Alvarez Wax Productions. Hands are slip cast latex rubber as patrons were known to break fingers while posing with the figure for photo ops. In very good to fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
