Manufactured by Esco Products, Inc. from the 1970's through the 1990's, these large plaster cast statues of some of the most notable performers from film and music are very charming in both imagery and body language. Each stands approximately 18 inches tall and weighs around eight pounds. The circular felted bases average 5-1/2" in diameter. Each statue reveals some minor overall wear, but otherwise present at the NM level with tremendous visual appeal. The reverse of each base bear a copyright inscription as noted. This lot contains: Jack Benny, Humphrey Bogart ("Esco Products, Inc. 1974"), Ray Charles ("ESCO 1996"), W.C. Fields, Jackie Gleason (2) ("1985 VIP Corp."), Bob Hope ("Esco Products, Inc. 1973"), Harpo Marx ("Esco Prod. Inc. 1975"), Frank Sinatra ("Esco Products, Inc. 1975") and John Wayne ("Esco Prod. Inc. 1979"). Also included is a complete set of Beatles statues—John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr—inscribed "Esco Prod. Inc. '84" along the back of each base.
