This Marshall figure was rescued from a damp basement where he had been lost for about 65 years. When I purchased him every time I touched him another piece fell apart. I sent him off to Ray Guyll for a complete restoration.

The results were utterly remarkable. He is without question one of the finest examples of Frank Marshall’s work from the 1930’s.
