Lenin holding a book or a tablet, bronze plated statuette circa 1970s.
8 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 2 1/4". For some unknown reason, the worker who prepped the figure for plating at the factory filed away all but one of the buttons on his vest.
Very good condition. The finish shows wear on a number of the high points but is still good looking. (It would probably be worthy of being replated if the new owner so desired.)
The base is marked with the official price of 8 rubles and 15 kopecks, a sum that would have kept many citizens from being able to purchase it.
Perfect item for display on a bookshelf!
