Tim was commissioned by Sir Terence Conran in 1991 to make this model. Francois Espinasse’s design combines great practicality with showmanship and story. Bibendum kicks out at rival Dunlop in one window and smokes a cool cigar on the other. Centrally he gulps down sharp nails – all the road can throw at him. ‘Now is the time to imbibe’ goes the slogan above his head. Decorative Minton tiles also feature famous racing cars and mosaics on the floor. Etchings of the streets of Paris adorn some of the windows due the Michelin’s close ties with road maps and tourism.

Weight: 2.2kg
