Fabulous figural of this endearing character created by the man who first drew Walt Disney and Walt's old "partner," UB Iwerks. Store display was used in a toy store in Germany in the 1930s. Composition with a green felt overlay, he is exceptional. When plugged in his eyes roll, he struts, and plays his trademark saxophone. Sax itself is a wonderful composition with original silver paint. Wears cloth vest, mouth painted with charming red lips, all handpainted and very "Flip." He uses European current but we have added a transformer to make him go. His movements are a bit sluggish but he works and can be tinkered with. Restoration to some of the felt, his leg is a bit cracked, but overall very good condition. Stands 21" tall, which we guess is life-size (if Flip had ever lived).
