George Dean Tin Man

George Dean was a tinsmith and folk artist who created this ten foot high tin man as a trade figure for his shop. It stood on top of his shop until it closed in 1985. The collector and antique dealer Elli Buk bought it shortly thereafter. This, and thousands of other items in the Elli Buk collection, are going up for auction in a few days.

Available at Grogan & Company.
