    Description

    Carl Barks The Expert Limited Edition Scrooge McDuck Figurine and Matching Signed Lithograph #25/25 Group of 2 (Another Rainbow, 1997). Uncle Scrooge closely scrutinizes a 1908 gold Double Eagle as he sits atop a pile of other coins, gold bars, and wads of greenbacks, in this fantastically detailed figurine. Scrooge is composed of hand-decorated bone china porcelain, with painted metal coins and cash; the plinth is made of cherrywood, with a felt bottom. The coin Scrooge is holding is a remarkably detailed miniature of a real 1908 Saint-Gaudens $20 gold piece, and is made of real 24-karat gold mined from a creek near the Yukon location where Scrooge first made his fortune, Dawson City. The piece measures approximately 10.75" tall, with a circumference of 11.5". Basing this design on his own 1975 painting, Carl Barks made a number of sketches showing Scrooge as he sat from all angles, and the end result is a perfect 3D replica of Barks' art. Each piece was signed and only 25 regular editions were produced, plus three artist's proofs, making this 25/25 numbered piece the last made before the molds were destroyed. It's a fantastic item for the ultimate fan of those classic Uncle Scrooge adventures. Included with it is a Carl Barks-signed lithograph print of the same title with matching edition number. It is in a frame measuring 19" x 17" with mat opening of 10" x 12" with a Certificate of Authenticity on back. The lot is in Fine condition. Frame is sold as-is.
