Rare "EPSAN" original retro bright orange MAN practice lifebuoy

Now this is a rarity! We can't even find one on ebay. This is an EPSAN made original lifebuoy in the shape of a man painted bright orange and white - the same colours as a usual round lifebuoy which you see at the coast. He was used as a practice lifebuoy for saving people in trouble. He has black plugs - one in his head and one in his chest to change his weight although he's heavy before you start putting water in him. The white paint has been redone at some some point but he is in very good condition - some wear to the white paint as photographed on the back. Fantastic original item which would make a real statement either as a sculpture in your house, shop or even in the garden.
