Radko Magic 25 Gunther

There is a story about this ornament:

Here are excerpts from an article found in the newsletter "Glitter" November/December 1996 issue:

"1995 was a difficult year for the Radko line due to problems with the factories in Poland. Nearly 100 pieces of the 1995 collection were retired that same year causing collectors to jam retailers' phone lines in an effort to locate these now limited production pieces. Once the factory problems were resolved, Christopher decided to give everyone one last shot at 25 of the retired pieces with an extra bonus. These 25 pieces were hand numbered - and notice I said the PIECES were numbered - not the tag!"

(and further down in the article)
"While some pieces such as Gunther and The Andrew Jacksons have already sold for up to five times their issue price, may are still available on the secondary market at what I consider very reasonable prices."

The list of Magic 25's include: High Flying, Caribbean Constable, Claudette, Frog Lady, Garden Girls, Farmer Boy, Personal Delivery, Turtle Bird, Officer Joe, Dutch Dolls, Sister Act, Grandpa Jones, Little Toy Maker, Mugsy, Penelope, Bringing Home The Bacon, Hubbard's The Name, The Andrew Jacksons, Little Red, Here Boy, Off To Market, Clown Rattle, Gunther, Imperial Helmet, Jumbo Walnut."

280 pieces of Gunther were made.

I am offering 3 Gunther numbered ornaments with the lowest numbered piece selling first and so on. Their numbering is as follows: 56, 58, and 80.

Disclosure: Many of the ornaments in this estate have been lovingly hung on the tree and have some patina. But considering their age, these pieces are in excellent, beautiful condition. They have been handled carefully, stored in climate controlled storage and come from a smoke-free home. We do our best to disclose any and all impurities.
