Set of 6, typically measuring between 5.5x7” to 5.5x8”. c. 1950s. Each string holder has ©MGM incised text along with numbers “3901-3906” in edges. High relief painted plaster with holes in mouth with string. Recessed backs have original metal hangers at top. Very highly detailed depictions including simulated tarnish to Tin Man’s face and hat. A superb complete set. Each of the 4 main characters are listed for $395.00 in the 2007 edition of Schroeder’s Antique Price Guide.

In May 2010, set of 4 sold for $2530 including commissions. Please check link( http://www.hakes.com/item.asp?AuctionItemID=55438#pictures ).
Since this is a complete set of 6 and two of them Glinda and Wicked Witch ( selling for over $1000 each) are very rare. I estimate a valu of a whole set of 6 at $5,,000.
