About

This wonderful pair of charming fellows once graced the interior of a mens clothing store. They were used to illustrate the same suit, but in different color options. They can free stand or be wall hung by the wire loop imbedded into the flat backs. The paint is original, and retains great charm. These would be a fantastic decorative element in any gentleman's dressing room.
