The wax is finely moulded and has a fabulous sepia hue. The plinth is made of turned wood and looks superb against the milky tone of the wax.
The bust and it's plinth have survived the years in good condition.
The bust on it's plinth measures :- 23.5 cm (9.25 inches) high x 13.5 cm (5.3 inches) wide x 9 cm (3.5 inches) deep.
