When you start to dive into the world of antiques and collectibles, you quickly find out that you will find really cool things in unexpected places.
Not too long ago, this happened to me when I came upon a local garage sale. And do you know what was there? Just a bust of Spiderman himself!
As you can see in the photo, the bust is made of plaster and it is also doubles as a bank (the coin slot is on the back of Spiderman’s head). Not only that, it is extremely detailed—you can see and feel the ribbing in Spiderman’s mask, and it also feels like the head actually has cloth on it.
Here’s the problem that I have with the bank—I know what it is, but I have no idea who made it. I was told that it was made in Mexico, but there is no maker’s mark or even a country of origin mark on it.
Does anyone know who could have made this great bank? Could it be a homemade piece that a fan of the character made?
Any information is greatly appreciated!
