DESCRIPTION
This is a Romer hand carved wood stock broker figure, made in Italy. All of these figures originally came with a clear plastic dome cover over the ticker tape machine, but since the dome sits atop the machine unsecured, it’s easily lost, so most of the figures you see for sale are missing their domes. This one is in rare complete condition, with its original dome cover.

DIMENSIONS & MARKINGS
The figure measures about 12.5" tall and has a sticker on the bottom that says, "Made in Italy."

CONDITION
This figure is in great vintage condition, with a couple of barely noticeable dings on the man's forehead and nose. Although not obvious, you may be able to further camouflage them with some light furniture polish. I've left it as it was when I acquired it. The dome has some light scuffing, visible on close inspection, which you can see in my close up photos.

SHIPPING
Domestic Shipping: The rate shown is for a 5 lb. insured parcel post package shipped to the zip furthest from me, but actual shipping to your zip code may be less. Feel free to convo me for exact rates. I will refund any postage overpayments.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but for most items I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
