    This question is directed to the mate ajax3985 if viewed, and in general to all forum members. In the end, I decided to buy this bust to a Spanish collector. I would like to know your opinions about this bust again.

    The bust was bought home directly from the vet who donated it to a Museum, the museum was raising money and allowed a dealer/ collector to sell this to raise funds and he bought it to the Max Show years ago where it was spotted. Its a great 2x life Pagels on original base and was untouched in any way. Other than a small bed to the plinth it was perfect. Very hard piece to find and it went to Spain to a collector from where you got it through a friend of the family after he passed away last year. Its probably one of the best I have seen and would advise to leave that plinth alone and make no attempts to straighten it. Its a commissioned piece and not a catalog example, and you just do not find those. Congratulations on it and enjoy it.

    Thanks for your response and for the information AJAX. The truth is that it is a big bust. This same Spanish collector like me offered me another bust of Hitler, and I would like your own opinion, and other colleagues.

    The artist is T.H Linz and its a nice bust although I do not recall seeing the name stamped like that before but not alarmed by that and its a looker. Base appears original to the piece with a nice foundry mark and a dark patina. The collector was fairly advanced and had some very nice pieces. It loos like a life size example which is nice. Feel free to forward him to me should you decline the piece if that helps you any. ;o)

    Interesting that two busts were cast at the same foundry in Munich.

    Its not a Pagel or its not even a bronze but a very nice terracotta base material with a bronze coating Bust- larger then life and with a nice dedication. Guess one has to be happy that it made over the past 69+ years without damage. Its makes for a nice centerpiece.

    By the way the Bronzes shown are outstanding , I have one also in the "Bunker" -
