Gondoliere        

Baron of Munchausen

At the end of 18th century, Rudolf Erich Raspe wrote and published the adventures of the Baron of Munchausen: this character represented the world champion of "teller tall tales".We are really charmed by his extraordinary adventures, which make us laugh and the author seems to have drawn inspiration from someone who had really existed, which we do not hesitate to believe in, because it is typical of human nature to boast about exploits that were just dreamt of. The novel also inspired two screen adaptations: a German one in 1936 and an American one in 1989. Height: Approximately 18" (46 cm) tall.
