Firemen Prototypes
Pot Bellys Charity Auction


Pot Bellys

US Flame Tamer and UK Smokey Joe prototypes

The firefighters of New York City and their families were hit particularly hard by the events of September 11th. The HK House of Peers and Harmony Ball Company offered you an opportunity to help with the auction of these two prototype Pot Bellys. The proceeds of this eBay auction will be donated to The Leary Firefighters Foundation Fund for New York's Bravest.
 

This auction was held on eBay
eBay Auction - Flame Tamer Pot Bellys Prototype Charity Auction
and ended November 18, 2001
 

Doug Harbert was the lucky winner with a bid of $152.50.
The proceeds are being sent to
The Leary Firefighters Foundation Fund for New York's Bravest.
 

These prototype box figurines were carved by Mark Ricketts and produced by Martin Perry StudiosT at England's Wimberley Mills. The box on the left represents a US fireman and was released as Flame Tamer, part of the Pot Bellys line. The one on the right represents an English fireman, and will be released in the UK as Smokey Joe. There are several major differences between the two pieces. The US fireman's jacket is striped and says "NO FEAR" on the back; his helmet is ridged with a large crest. The English fireman's jacket is a solid colour and says "FIRE" on the back; his helmet is smoother with a smaller crest. The faces are also very different.
