About this Item

N.d., circa 1940s. Advertising giveaway (one assumes) of Monger Enterprises, Memphis TN. (This company's name, address and phone are printed on the marble base.) The figurine is a sculptural rendering of a popular comic strip character of the day. The base is 8 cm square, and the item is 9 cm from the bottom to the top of the "Gay Philosopher"'s rumpled hat. The sculpture appears to have been made of a composite material. Some of the colors have been lightly rubbed, but it remains a colorful figurine. Felt bottom to the base.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
