This is a wooden replica of the Budweiser "Bud One" Blimp. It is in excellent, fantastic condition, and it is a real eye catcher. It is 25” from front to back, 10” from top to bottom, and 25” in circumference (not counting the passenger compartment on the bottom). It has a chain on the top as it is made to hang from a ceiling, most likely over a bar. It is light, so I know the wood is not solid. But this is NOT an inflatable blimp. I cannot find any info either online or from local antique / collectible shops. Does anyone know what I have and what value monetarily it could be assigned? I have tried to find info online with no luck. I have taken it to numerous antique and collectible stores, but no one seems to know anything about it. Can anyone tell me anything about this blimp? What do I have, and what you think it is worth?

    I have the same Blimp and believe I purchased it from a store called Wicks and Sticks in Atlanta Georgia about 5 years ago for I think $350 . It looks similar to other items I have found while passing threw the Philipeans. I also have a hot air ballon that has much more detail and is also made of wood and has a gondola and people below it. It would be nice to know the value of both of them. I think for the most part both have increased in value due to the rarity of them.
