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 Le Traité d'Astronomie (Whisky bottles inside an Astronomy Book), that features in the Tintin adventures ‘Explorers on the Moon’ (On a marche sur la Lune). The whisky bottles are hidden inside a fake book, which is titled Traité d'Astronomie (Astronomy Treatise). The front cover slots into 2 metal prongs, keeping the book half open. The miniature model (Stock number 5609) is cast in lead alloy and hand painted. It is in near mint condition.

The Book comes with its certificate of authenticity, numbered 135/1500 (only 1475 were made). It was produced in 1995 and comes with its blue 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.
