Huge Cast Iron Michelin Man, Bibendum Man, 17" Michelin Man Statue,
Huge Huge Huge!
This lumpy guy looks happy and he should be! He's the all around king of the Vintage Michelin line weighing in at 18 lbs 9 ozs. But he does seem to be a gentle giant with a warm smile and bright eyes, definitely lots of charm.
The Michelin bibendum man cast iron statue represents years of history that goes with the Michelin brand. His vintage style and solid cast iron build means he'll be around for many years to come. Definitely a cast iron collectible coin bank that will be handed down to your grandchildren. Just a cool piece of Americana advertisement.
