Antique Iron Maiden
Nuremberg Torture Souvenir
For your consideration:
A rare and elusive miniature Iron Maiden souvenir.
Reference books suggests that this "Iron Maiden" was most likely purchased at Castle Nuremberg circa 1900-1910, as a souvenir/toy during a visit to the castle.
The statue measures around 4-3/4 inches tall.
The base measures 1-3/4 inches wide.
The front panels opens to reveal sharp internal "barbs, all of them intact and very minor rust.
The front of the base reads "Eiserne Jungfrau" and is cast iron.
The words "GG Leykauf, Nurnberg" are stamped inside the maiden on the base.
For being so small, it has a serious heft.
Please note that the front panels will close snugly but require a delicate touch, otherwise one panel will overlap the other panel.
All four original hinges are intact.
Condition is absolutely wonderful.
