Product Description

A fine and highly desirable example of a limited edition piece of ‘The adventures of Tintin’ memorabilia by the French company Pixi, Paris and marketed under the collection ‘L’Objet du Mythe’.

It is La Boite de Crabes (Tin of Crab), that features in the Tintin adventure ‘Le Crabe aux pinces d'or’ (The Crab with the Golden Claws), famously containing opium, as part of an international smuggling ring. The tin is yellow with a red crab and CRABE EXTRA written underneath. The miniature model (Stock number 5602) is cast in lead alloy and hand painted. It is in near mint condition.

The Tin of Crab comes with its certificate of authenticity, numbered 520/2000. It was produced in 1994 and comes with its original red box. The box is also in very nice condition, with minor scuff marks in the corners.

The Adventures of Tintin are a cartoon collection of books, and are celebrated all around the World. Tintin is a reporter, who, together with his faithful dog Milou (Snowy in the English version) and friend Captain Haddock, solve mysteries, crimes that are quite sophisticated and very often highly political, meaning that they are appreciated by young and old alike. Topics such as The Japanese Imperial invasion of China, the Opium and Slave trades, Weapons sales to Arab and South American countries, the Communist Block, Organised Crime in the USA and around the World are all covered in the books.
Pixi produced some 20 different pieces of Tintin memorabilia, which tend to be iconic items from the adventures and are instantly recognisable to fans.
