Coronettes Advertising Bust

Antique papier-mache advertising bust for small Coronettes cigars.  Dating from circa 1920, this is a rare survivor as it is made from such a fragile material. It has had a few knocks to the head (see photos), but is still intact and complete with the original cigar.  We have included a top hat to cover his life scars. This would have spent its life on the counter in a tobacconists to promote the brand - still has remnants of the original makers & distributors labels on the rear. 

Measures: 35cm tall x 20cm wide x 20cm deep
