Vickers Medium Mark II Tank bronze desk ornament c.1925 - 1934
A superb quality Interwar period heavy weight bronze desk ornament, modelled in fine detail on the style of a British Army 'Vickers Medium Mark II Tank'; the turret opens by a push down catch attached to the gun barrel to reveal a cedar wood lined box, which would suggest it was designed possibly for cigarettes. Very good
