This figurine was created by an English illustrator, J. Cassin-Scott. It was commissioned by Luther Norris (Culver City, California) in the late '60's and sold for $15.00. It was latex, hand painted and 8" tall. The photograph is from issue 5 of the Rohmer Review. He also did a figurine of Moris Klaw and a second, "correct," Fu Manchu without the moustache. There is no mention of the moustache in anything written by Rohmer. It seems to be a cinematic addition which was embraced by the illustrators and the public.
