Deutschland (U155)

This submarine was broken up in Birkenhead in 1921.

I have an 11cm high iron bust of an imposing looking gentleman in collar and tie, waistcoat and jacket. His name, on the front of the plinth, cannot be made out accurately. Embossed on the rear of the plinth is the following: MADE FROM "DEUTSCHLAND" METAL (sic). All in upper case.

Is it possible that this figurine or statuette, call it what you will, is cast from metal derived from the submarine Deutschland? And can anyone hazard a guess at the identity of the person depicted?
