    Vintage Chinese Stubergh waxwork figure from the lobby of the Chinese Theatre. Vintage Chinese Stubergh waxwork figure from the lobby of the Chinese Theatre. One of several Chinese wax figures designed by Katherine and Otto Stubergh of Stubergh wax creators (aka Stubergh Manufacturing) famed wax figure artists. Madame Katherine Stubergh was a celebrity in her own right, and it was considered an immense honor to be immortalized in wax by her. This figure was created at the request of Stubergh's close personal friend, Sid Grauman. The 64 in. tall x 19 in. wide figure was originally on display in various locations around the lobby of the TCL Chinese Theatre since opening in 1927. It is dressed in traditional Chinese wear, although it is a modern replacement since the original silk attire had deteriorated. A number of stars have been known to rub on the figure while attending premiers for good luck. In vintage very good condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
