Femlin Reclining On Back
Original Vintage Figure/Statue
The Femlin was a concept that grew out of the collaborative process between Hugh Hefner Editor In Chief of Playboy and famed Playboy artist Leroy Neiman in the mid 1950's. She is an impish one-foot-tall character full of mischief, clad only in opera length gloves, thigh-high black stockings and high heels. The cartoon character has appeared in every issue of the magazine on the joke page and on numerous Playboy covers since her birth in August 1955. The "life-size" figures, originally sculpted by Austin Fox, were available for $7.50 each as advertised in Playboy in the early 1960's. Today, they are worth considerably more and with the recent death of the iconic Hugh Hefner...their value is skyrocketing!
Presented for your consideration is an original vintage Playboy Femlin figurine/statue from 1961. This is the reclining on her back version, one of four different versions made in the 1960's. She is 8" long (reclining) and would be 12" tall if she magically stood up. She exhibits the usual age crazing normally found in these 60 year old figures. She bears her original patina and is charming.
Excellent vintage condition!!! Some light fading & wear, absolutely no cracks...beautiful face paint. See photos as this is being sold as-is. She displays beautifully! Any questions please ask !
