Trylon and Perisphere Statue

I am trying to find a Trylon and Perisphere figure about 8 to 12" tall to place on top of one of my RCA 1939 televisions.

Small figures (2 or 3 inches) are easy to find, but taller ones (original or reproduction) seem to be scarce.

Any suggestions besides ebay and etsy (that I am already checking daily)?

That WF was always a hot collectable so I would look for forums
etc & ask them.
My father & his sisters went to the fair. He was an EE so the
TV impressed him. Just after the the war he bought the 2nd
TV in town. One of those common 10" Admirals. He had built the
first tube radio in town as a kid.

Another hobby I have is collecting KEM brand solid plastic playing cards.
They had a Trylon & Perisphere pattern. It was a double deck with
special WF inserts & hard case. They will set you back $400 for
a complete set. The famous industrial designer Raymond Loewy
did some of the KEM backs at the time, he may have done these.
He is worth study for those not familiar with him. So many things we
see around us came from him. He was NOT just a flash in the pan....

The following world's fair auction ends in two days, and although it does not have any large T&P statuettes, the proprietor could be a prime contact to help locate such:

I have dealt with him before, and he's OK.

You could also post your question at worldsfaircommunity.org
