He was obviously part of a branding and advertising for a product.
When I first saw it, I thought I'd seen it before, on perhaps an advert for a whisky, but haven't found any references for anything like that.
So this happy chappy, with the splendid beard, is a bit of a mystery!
Made of resin and standing at about 20cm high, he was originally holding something in his right hand, and probably left hand as well.
I wonder what it was?!
I think I'll use him as a prop on my stall, getting him to hold a flyer or business card.
Anyone who knows where he came from, and what he was advertising, please let me know and solve the mystery for me!!
