James Cagney Esco Statue?

Just like anything else....you find out by doing a little research. The company is still in business - http://www.escostatue.com/

 

As an antique dealer, I've come across many Escos in my day, the most common: Groucho, Mark Twain, WC Fields and Mae West. Don't know if I've ever seen a Cagney....so that tells you it's more unusual.

 

Apparently, they produce a figure for a limited time (molds deteriorate) then stop production, so they are *all* "original".

 

I know the ones from the 70's are made of chalkware (porous plaster type material) and the ones in production now are resin (dense plastic) so that can help date it for you.

No matter what it's made of, be careful not to let it chip or crack, it'll dramatically lower the value.

Vacuum it with a soft brush, never dust it by rubbing with a cloth or cleaning solution!
