Stalin Death Mask Up For Auction
LONDON, Jan. 24 (UPI) — Bronze casts of Joseph Stalin’s face and hands at the time of his death could fetch $4,600 to $7,700 at auction, a British auction house said.
Mullock’s auction house said the bronze casts are among 12 copies from the original plaster cast made when the Soviet dictator died in 1952, but Richard Westwood-Brooks, the business’ historical documents expert, said he believes there are only nine, RIA Novosti reported Monday.
“It is the closest you could come to having Stalin in your living room,” Westwood-Brooks said.
