That's a fantastic piece of gimcrack.  It's too bad, the seller didn't ship it properly. Sad

If there was only 12 total, ever made.  You might have one of the rarest pieces of gimcrack out there. cheers

James, that’s a hell of a story and I am shocked how well you were able to re-assemble that thing. bowwing

I’ve recently got in two fine examples of unlicensed gimcrack (not sure if the podcast guys are into unlicensed stuff) but one of them I’ve never even seen a photo of before and it is pretty wild. I’ll post them as soon as I’ve had a chance to take some photos which do them justice. popcorn

In the meantime, I am thoroughly enjoying James’ story there. clapping

Here's my latest gimcrack pick:

Some glorious, colourful bootleg stickers with a Canadian import sticker on the back.

The second item there is the notorious Spaced #1 (1974) by Jim Pinkoski. If you're not familiar, there was a great 'Chive Cast episode, way back (during the ESB figures, I think) where they covered it quite well, but I can't seem to find that episode or I'd have linked it here.

That's awesome, James! It might be an unlicensed piece. Much like the frisbee, it could have been made by the company that distributed it. That being said, the graphic does look pretty legit.

Here's a wild one. Supposedly this poster was never officially sold. Lucasfilm either disliked it for calling Luke a Jedi Knight in 1977 (too early) or they shot it down because its just plain terrible graphic design. rofl

Looks like a stepping stone for a garden that was turned into a clock! wonder if it was a custom piece or an actual manufactured item for sale.

It must have been a production piece in the world of ceramics.  I just found another well worn example on ebay.

I wonder if it was one of those types of pieces that come as greenware at the ceramic shops, you then can paint it any way you want and have it fired to finish it. Depending on who is doing the painting Kid vs Adult you get a more professional look. You can see from the first example there was many more colours used for more detail.

I really considered buying them but the price was a bit more then I was willing to spend .

Anyone aware of any candle making kit that these could have come from ?  scratch
