Early 20th Century American Bronze Figurine of a Jewish Businessmen
Now! Vot about it? (an imitation of the Jewish accent), heavy, cast bronze figurine of a rotund bald man in a 3 piece suit. He stands, slightly bow legged, with his thumbs in his vest armholes, fingers over the wide lapels of his knee length jacket. He has heavy jowls, and his face is creased by a look of smug disapproval. His facial features are stereotypically Jewish: large flaplike ears, thick eyebrows, deepset, hooded eyes, a very large, curved nose, and a thick, protruding lower lip. He stands on a short, smooth, rectangular base with angled sides, and an engraved caption: Now! Vot About It?
