UP FOR BIDDING IS A NEAT ANTIQUE SCULPTURE OF A MONKEY MAN DRESSED IN A SUIT WITH SHORT PANTS. IN HIS HANDS IS A ROUND DISH. THIS BUTLER IS MADE OF EITHER CAST IRON OR BRONZE. IT DOES HAVE SMALL PORTIONS OF GOLD SHOWING THROUGH THE MONKEY'S HEAD.

THIS CHARMING PIECE STOOD IN OUR FOYER AND MY HUSBAND USED IT FOR A KEY OR LOOSE COIN DROP. THE FIGURE IS QUITE HEAVY AND ON THE BOTTOM IS BLACK FELT TO PRESERVE YOUR TABLE TOPS.

THE MONKEY IS WEARING A HANDPAINTED BUTLER SUIT JACKET OF GRAY WITH A GOLDEN YELLOW SHIRT AND TIE. THE PANTS ARE FOREST GREEN AND KNEE LENGTH. THE FIGURE STANDS ON A NICE LOOKING BASE.

I ORIGINALLY PURCHASED THIS DELIGHTFUL ITEM AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP YEARS AGO AND THOUGHT HE WAS QUITE ELEGANT IN APPEARANCE. THE COST AT THE TIME WAS PRETTY HEFTY. I WAS TOLD BY THE ANTIQUE SHOP OWNER AT THE TIME OF THE PURCHASE THAT THIS PIECE WAS ORIGINAL.

IN VERY GOOD CONDITION SHOWING NO CHIPS, CRACKS, PAINT LOSS, OR OTHER DAMAGE. MEASURES 12" HIGH X 3-1/4" ROUND AT THE BASE AND THE BOWL EXTENDS OUTWARD TO THE BACK OF THE FIGURE BY 4-3/4" DEEP.

I APPRECIATE YOU DROPPING BY MY AUCTION SITE TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS AND VIEW THE DETAILS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME. YOUR SATISFACTION WILL BE GUARANTEED.

STARTING AT A LOW BID WITH NO RESERVE AND THE MOST ECONOMICAL SHIPPING FEE I CAN OFFER VIA USPS PARCEL POST. CAREFUL PACKING AND INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST AT THE END OF THE AUCTION.

PLEASE NOTE: SORRY, BUT I DO NOT SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. BUYERS FROM HAWAII OR ALASKA, NEED TO CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE, AS T WILL BE A SLIGHTLY HIGHER SHIPPING COST THAN LISTED DUE TO THE DISTANCE. THANK YOU!
