    Don Quixote. Spanish souvenir. As you probably know, he's everywhere in Spain.

    I've got a very similar Don...along with Sancho. Both have some age...I'll dig 'em out & post for comparison.

    I've got one marked with the name of the company that makes them: Ouro Artisania.

    Sorry for correction but typo above which changes meaning of company name. It's Ouro Artesanía. Artesanía means "handicraft." And I was very interested to learn that all those Quixote figures are produced by the same company.
