Unique Chairman Mao Rubber Bust

This bust of Chairman Mao is very unusual. The front carries the oft found phrase to wish Chairman Mao a long life, but the back of this rubber piece indicates that it was made to commemorate the mango gift from Chairman Mao, as further detailed HERE. The addition of these words molded into the back of this bust makes it a highly desirable piece of history.

The inscription states, "Chairman Mao receives the worker representative of our factory and presents a mango in commemoration of the event". The factory in question is Beijing No. 2 Chemical Plant, Revolutionary Committee, and it is dated Aug. 15, 1968.

The bust measures 21 cm (8 1/4 inches) high and the rubber remains soft and without damage to the appearance of Chairman Mao.
