Check this cool guy out! He's a great representation of the Michelin Bibendum Man. An iconic part of our automotive history that works as a doorstop or coin bank. My Michelin collection makes a great gift or a way to treat yourself to a really awesome part of history. If you're a collector that this may be the Michelin Man for you. The Bibendum Michelin advertising pieces can stand alone or finish out your lot.

 

Quick Wiki History for the Bibendum Michelin Tire Man:
Bibendum, commonly referred to in English as the Michelin Man, is the symbol of the Michelin tire company. Introduced at the Lyon Exhibition of 1894 where the Michelin brothers had a stand,[1] Bibendum is one of the world's oldest trademarks. The slogan Nunc est bibendum (Drink up) is taken from Horace's Odes (book I, ode xxxvii, line 1). He is also referred to as Bib or Bibelobis.[2]

The size for this vintage cast iron Michelin Bibendum man cast iron statue is:

9" Tall by 4.5" Deep by 6" Wide

The Michelin Guy weighs in at a hefty 5lbs

Warm Regards
