    Description

    Uncle Scrooge Always Another Rainbow Limited Edition Figurine Artist's Proof #1 (Another Rainbow, undated). To kick off their series of Carl Barks Figurines, Bruce Hamilton and company chose this iconic image from a 1974 Barks painting, the one the company was named after -- Always Another Rainbow. In it, we see Scrooge as he stakes out his first claim in the Yukon, ready to find the fabulous golden "goose egg" nugget that his fortune would be built on. And this magnificent hand-decorated porcelain prize is quite a find in itself. Only 100 regular editions were produced, plus ten Artist's Proofs, of which this is number one.

    The figurine is exquisitely painted, using 22-carat gold for the nuggets in Scrooge's sack. It took the craftsmen nearly fifteen hours to hand paint each figure, and that attention to detail shows at every turn. The porcelain figure sits atop a cherrywood base, and is approximately 10.75" tall, with the base measuring about 7.5" x 6.5". Barks has signed the piece in gold ink, and there are flecks of gold sprinkled about the rocks Scrooge stands on. The figurine is in Excellent condition. Requires third party shipping. From the Kerby Confer Collection.
