Complete set of four original Beatles ‘Bobbin’ Head Dolls.’ Produced by Carmascots in 1964. Each measuring approximately 3 x 7.5, with Ringo Starr a bit smaller in status, measuring 2.5 x 7. In very good condition, with mild to moderate wear, including scattered rubbing, surface dings, small areas of chipping, and some mild cracking. John exhibits flaking to the base with repaired base extending to trouser hem, Paul exhibits chipping to his neck, George exhibits repairs and and cracks near trouser hem, and Ringo exhibits flaking and a repaired base crack. The original owner may have taken the manufacturer’s advice to achieve maximum motion of the ‘bobbin’ heads by placing them “on the rear window platform of autos—or on top of phonograph players—or close to fan, air conditioning or heating ducts”…a certain recipe for disaster.
