Bibendum Heaven

On October 5th Morphys Auctions had a petroliana auction that had some of the sweetest Michelin advertising figures. As expected, they commanded top dollar.

This guy was plaster or composite and stood 31″ tall. He sold for $8000

The next had some condition issues, such as repaint and replacement accessories. He was the standard 31″ tall and made from the same materials. He went for a measly $2500

The last figure was the compressor topper that you see often around the auction world. Even so, bidders got excited and ponied up $1200 for him, even without the compressor.
