Gruesome Amputation Tableau of Tin Miniature Handmade Figures Walking with Mr. D.
This is a first. Completely made by hand, with an indecipherable signature and no indication of age (but they are old...not 17th century old, but old) a lurid gruesome scene. I think the figures, which are made of lead and tin (all painted by hand and all original) were at one time part of a larger installation or display. A museum of horrors which has closed down? Objects from the former Malcom Forbes toy museum on Fifth Avenue? (If you never saw Malcom Forbes toy collection, you haven't seen a toy collection.) A quite remarkable little nightmare with meticulous construction. I also have what could be called "Walking with Mr. D."
