Bettie Page, the famous 1950s pin-up model died a few days ago. To honor her memory I’m offering this statue for sale — buy yourself a gift for the holidays. Betty sits on a stool and is wearing a metal-like bikini bottom with a heart shaped lock, like a chastity belt. (She is hiding the key behind her back). The box shows light storage wear but remains in good shape overall. The statue looks like new, and has only been out of her box a few times.
This risque figure/statue stands about 12.5 inches tall and looks cool. I’m not sure about the brand name, as the lettering is Chinese, but the box says “Mr. Showbiz Betty Page”. I had bought it as a present for my dad, but Mom wouldn’t let him display it in his workshop! Dad gave it back hoping we could find Bettie a good home. I don’t know exactly how rare it is, but I’ve only seen one other and it sold for over $100. I am asking for $85 + shipping in a nice, sturdy box. E-mail me if interested.
International buyers are welcome, but require payment via PayPal (email@example.com) or International (Postal) Money Order. US residents can also pay by personal check. I ship via Priority Mail or International Priority Mail.
UPDATE - The statue was sold on eBay, on January 12, 2009 for just over $160. Yay!
