Potter's Wax Museum- Edward IV


This elaborate wax figure of Edward IV, twice King of England highlights the attitude and adornment of the king whose reign was so much associated with violence.

A closer view of the wax figure. Known as a tall and handsome man, Edward stands here stern and imposing.

Some technological advances which happened during his reign include the Caxton printing press and the manufacturing of silk.

Movieland Wax Museum- Slim Summerville and Zasu Pitts

Here's a nice little scene from the Movieland Wax Museum of popular silent film actor Slim Summerville, and actress Zasu Pitts. The pair worked together in over a dozen films from 1930 to 1941.

The same scene with the flash on.

A closer view of Zasu Pitts.

Mr. Summerville standing behind a tuba and looking a little confused.

The two figures were not featured in the Movieland auction, but the set sold for $300.
