However, it shows his embossed signature with the date of July 1926, which is a month before he died. That being the case, I am not sure where these were made or what they were intended for.
I can say I have only seen 2 of them in my 20 years of collecting; one of the two I bought and that is what you see here. I was also later able to obtain the brass mold for the item which is also shown here. Someone had drilled holes in it and using screws had secured it to a block of wood. I removed all that once I got it.
The photos don't do it justice, in person is a perfect likeness of Rudolph Valentino made with some kind of hard 1920's plastic, it measures about 2 1/2" tall and about 2" across.
A rare keepsake regarding Rudolph Valentino! These don't show up very often.
