    Neil Armstrong and the "Moon Rabbit"

    Giant Leap World Tour, 11/03-04 (South Korea): Wooden Storage Box with Extensive Mother-of-Pearl Inlay Work, Presented by the Prime Minister to the Armstrongs, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A gorgeous, highly-polished 11" x 6" (top) x 3.75" (tall) wooden box that could certainly be used for various purposes including cigarettes (although there is no ashtray present). The top has an inlaid image of an astronaut receiving a present from the Moon rabbit (a common Asian folklore figure) along with a futuristic spacecraft and the earth in the background. Applied tiny letters read: "Welcome to Korea Mr. & Mrs. Neil Armstrong" ("L" in Neil missing). The front bears a detailed depiction of the track to the moon and back by the spacecraft along with an engraved plate: "Presented By Prime Minister Il Kwon Chung/ Seoul, Korea/ Nov. 3, 1969". The sides and back have "Apollo 11" Saturn stage separation artwork. A stunning piece for display. Very fine. CAG 1003305-004. This lot will include an encapsulated CAG Photo Certificate with a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
