    These Czech figurines were made with all kinds of people and occupation, doctors and dentists were a favorite one, and other types of manly professions.

    The site realorrepro has an article about these, and the dating of their production, it seems these were first made earlier during the 20th century, but a whole new group was produced after 1990. He also claims that the quality and glass application are as good as the originals, but the difference is with the label and the absence of an acid mark.

    It does not matter to me, I thought the fat bald business man was very cute with his 2 old fashioned phones and fun to have, this was part of a glass lot at a private auction. About 7 inches tall.

      Must be a middleman taking glass orders from foreign buyers? lol

      Neat figurine with a piece of history. This is how 3-way calling was done before there was actual 3 way calling, call-waiting and cell phones. lol
