Description

    Beatles Yellow Submarine John Lennon Prototype 1968 Porcelain Figurine (Goebel, 1968). This porcelain representation of John Lennon is a pre-production prototype of the very limited 1968 edition of the Yellow Submarine figures, made by the famous German company Goebel -- perhaps best known as the exclusive manufacturer of the highly-collectible Hummel figurines. It is in every way the same as the very limited production run, with the exception of having none of the psychedelic paint, which would have been hand-applied to the versions later made for sale. It is in Near Mint condition, with no chipping, the glaze fresh and shiny. The production lot number "308" is impressed into the bottom of the right foot, with "1968" impressed into the left, which also has the Goebel stylized bee three line mark in blue. Stands 8.5" high from boots to fingertips.
