Hello,does any one know anything about DWD 01B? its a small Libarian approx 5cm high and bronze in colour and has the old clarecraft label on the base. I have searched everywhere i can think of but can not find out anything about him. I know that bronze and pewter finishes were used for a short time from 91 to 93 but that is all. Please HELP!!!!!
Very, I've only ever seen one other and I was collecting them when it originally came out. The bronze and pewter finishes were unpopular and this figure even when painted didn't sell well as it was to a different scale than all the other figures. The collectors guide says less than 10 were sold of some bronze finished figures and I could easily believe that this was the case with this one.
Thank you very much for that,i didnt even know i had it until yesterday when i was going through my collection to check for duplicate's. Looks like i might be able to have a holiday this year after all!!! any idea as to the value?
Perhaps Mad could comment, but I suspect that these aren't collected so much these days anyhow. I don't think there are the dedicated collectors that used to exist. Something is only valuable as long as someone else wants to buy it.
True to a certain extent Tony, the big prices for most of the figures have fallen back but some are still wanted and do well. I don't think this is one of those though, as I said it doesn't fit with the rest of the collection so has never been popular. I bought almost all of mine new when they came out so never paid the inflated secondary prices and haven't really kept up with what they are making nowadays.
