This figural console is an original example accomplished by the famed carver, Frank Polk. For many years, the Miner was nicely kept in the dark regions of the old Bonanza Casino and was later given as a parting gift by the owner to a relative in 1969 and has now recently resurfaced after 50+ years. Its original state has been maintained, complete with authentic paint but surely shows some wear. The original slot machine has been replaced with the 8 Star Bell, manufactured in 1948 to 1949 by Pace. Restored but is a perfectly matched stand-in and is in great working condition. The Polk carving is marked with a gold tag, numbered 22 and is wearing a hat. Beautiful example.

Condition: (Good - Very Good).

Item Dimensions: 71"T x 24" Dia.
