ASHBURN, Va. — From Betty Boop’s dog Bimbo to the Hindu Goddess Parvati, Oakridge Auction Gallery will indeed have something for everyone at its East Meets West auction June 7-8. There will be a gallery preview exhibition open to the public Wednesday, June 5 through Friday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bimbo will be offered in three different colors: Green, red and orange. The figures all feature articulated limbs and are marked “Bimbo DES & Copyright by Fleischer Studios.” The bronze figure of the Hindu Goddess Parvati measures 20 inches tall and dates from the 1950s. It is from the collection of Hollywood and Broadway set designer Robert Gundlach.
