Seldom-seen Babe Ruth commemorative piece, featuring the exact bust that appears on the Babe Ruth clock and Babe Ruth radio.  The figural bust of Ruth is likely manufactured by Abbotwares (the same company that manufactured the clock and radio), and is mounted atop a wooden box, measuring approximately 8 1/2" in height in its entirety, by 6" in width.  The bust has been mounted to a wooden lid, which revealed a felt-lined compartment for watches, jewelry, and the like.  The bust remains in excellent condition, some light wear and tear to the wooden box.
