The Count Dracula Society has been around since the 1960's. It's an organization dedicated to the serious study of Horrow Films and Gothic Literature. In 1975 I was one the the society's vice-presidents. During that year we nationally televised our awards banquet from KTLA in Hollywood, CA. We commissioned a famous sculpter, Mr. Jim Rumph to design and produce the ceramic sculptures that were given out as awards to the winners in categories involving: movies, television and literature. Mr Rumph did his unique type ceramic artwork under his company name of "The Mind Circus." He gave me the prototype statue as a gift after the show was over.

My picture is of one of the awards, not the prototype.

One of the most UNIQUE creations of JIM RUMPH, this CERAMIC COUNT DRACULA STATUETTE (a "test" from the mold, as so marked, rather than an ACTUAL AWARD STATUE - how RARE is THIS?!!!) stands fourteen inches high, five and-a-quarter inches wide at base, and three and three-quarters inches deep at base. In addition to "J RUMPH" and "1975", the word "TEST" is also scrawled into the bottom. In 1962 DR. DONALD A. REED founded the COUNT DRACULA SOCIETY, an organization dedicated to the serious study of HORROR FILMS and GOTHIC LITERATURE. In 1975 the Society's Awards Banquet was nationally Televised from KTLA TELEVISION STUDIOS in HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA. JIM RUMPH was commissioned to design and produce the ceramic TRANSYLVANIAN COUNT statuettes that were awarded to the chosen winners in Literature, Television, and Motion Picture categories.
