    Description

    Rudolph Valentino terrazzo and brass star from Hollywood Walk of Fame. (presumed post-1959 replacement) Hollywood Blvd. "Walk of Fame" sidewalk celebrity star for Rudolph Valentino. Complete black cast-marble composite terrazzo square atop 1 in. thick concrete slab measuring 35 x 36 in., inset with brass strip-outlined star filled with red cast terrazzo, brass 2 in. letters "RUDOLPH VALENTINO", and 6 in. cast bronze circle plaque of motion-picture camera, the particular designation on the walk of fame for film-industry dignitaries. Slight chipping at extremities and loosening of surround strips, which is the reason the Hollywood stars must be periodically replaced to keep them presentable, considering their continuous abuse from millions of walking tourists. All the first generation stars were replaced in 1959, followed by an as-needed basis (with the most famous celebrities like Valentino receiving a preponderance of traffic). Considering the difficulty of removal and transportation of this 141 lb. artifact, it remains in remarkably fresh and intact condition, generally fine overall. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
