    Description

    Carl Barks Christmas Composition Deluxe Figurine Unique Prototype (Another Rainbow, 1990s). Uncle Scrooge makes like his famous namesake, Ebenezer Scrooge, in this incredible Christmas-themed fine porcelain sculpture, showing no holiday mercy to his poor relations Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

    Based on the famous 1972 painting by Carl Barks (sometimes referred to as "A Christmas Trimming"), this massive, highly detailed piece stands approximately 20.25" tall and 23" at its widest point. And that detail is truly amazing, with multiple Christmas trees covered in snow, the ducks in textured winter clothes, the reflected light on the freshly fallen snow -- wow! This was one of ten Barks images chosen to be turned into 3-D figurines, but after this single prototype, it was determined that the cost to produce this particular piece would price them out of the market. If you want one, this is it, so don't bother asking Santa -- just bid!

    Third-party shipping required. From the Kerby Confer Collection.
