    Description

    Mr. Bug Goes to Town Honey Bee Animator's Maquette (Max Fleischer, 1941). This is a rare maquette of Honey Bee that may have been a prototype for a product at the time of the film's release, or may have been a studio reference sculpt. Little is known about maquettes for this film. A few other characters have popped up in this similar form. Paint may have been restored. Nice sculpt of 11" to her antenna, on a 2" x 2" base. An extremely rare piece of Fleischer Studio history. Fine condition.
