Cultural Revolution Mango under Glass Dome with Clear Base

This is perhaps one of the strangest objects to come out of the Cultural Revolution in China. In August 1968 Chairman Mao was presented with Mangos, which he then redistributed to various teams in Beijing. Rather than consume these sacred mangos, they were preserved. And since the actual mangos could not be preserved indefinitely, wax mangos were made and placed under glass as one way to remember this wonderful gift from Chairman Mao. Mangos also showed up on pins along with Chairman Mao, on propaganda posters, and on signs to name a few.

MIR 00002

Mirror with Stand from Cultural Revolution

This is a great item from the Cultural Revolution in China. The front carries the greeting, 'Long Live Chairman Mao!', 'Long Live the People!' at the top of the mirror. The reverse of the mirror has red paper (slightly faded at the edges) under glass with a quotation from Chairman Mao that states, 'The force at the core leading our cause forward is the Chinese Communist Party. The theoretical basis guiding our thinking is Marxism-Leninism.'

MIR 00003

Cultural Revolution Round Mirror

This is quite an unusual mirror in the fact it is made from plastic rather than steel. It is small enough to be used as a traveling mirror or kept in an office desk. The reverse side has a very colorful quote from Chairman Mao.
