Think You Know Figurines? Meet Antartidee’s Meticulous Quest For Details

GOLFISTA Golfer Figurine

Heads Up!!! Maurizio e Roby designed this figurine to remind us of someone.

This fall we have four new groups of products coming. I have already talked about the Dionigi bags and wallets, the next group is made up by the Antartidee figurines. For years we looked at them longingly but we were not planning to bring these in this year. That was until not one, but two, customers were willing to place prepaid orders for us to supply them.

You might say that two customers is not a big enough sample population to make a decision like this but in our world two customers requesting something means popular demand. So we bought what they wanted and we got three for us to try. We picked the Golfer, the Sax Player, and the Dentist, but it was really hard to narrow down our choices because we could think of someone that would make a great gift recipient for just about any of them.

I can’t wait to get my hands on these figurines. My spirit thrives on fun, clever wit, and jokes (among other things, of course–I don’t think that I am a full-time buffoon). As you would expect from an Antartidee product, the details in these figurines are, well, very detailed. Their meticulous quest to portray even the smallest details brings these characters to life and turns them into, if not works of art, works of artistry that catch your train of thought in a pleasing way.
