Description



Glorified as arguably the best in their respective fields, Muhammad Ali and Joe DiMaggio were portrayed in countless forms such as the offered figurines. Includes:

Muhammad Ali a 1981 15”-tall hand-painted porcelain decanter; the colorful display showcases the outspoken pugilist standing tall on a platform proclaiming “The Greatest.” Ali’s removable head is secured to a cork. Crafted by “American Porcelain” for the McCormick Distilling Co., the piece was originally filled with grenadine and maintains its wondrous appearance. Original box included.

Joe DiMaggio a 2001 Danbury Mint hand-painted porcelain likeness of “The Yankee Clipper”; standing approximately 8”-tall (when displayed on the wooden base), the pinstripe-clad Hall of Famer has just taken a full swing. Mint condition with original certification documents accompanying.
