For sale here is a BIG vintage 1930s 40s whimsical one of a kind handmade wood plastic and bottle cap African or Latin Band figure / trinket dish / card holder etc. An entirely handmade and hand painted whimsical musical figure made from wood, bottle caps that have been painted gold and used for the 'costume' covering his arms and legs, and an orange plastic "hat" at top that could be used for just about anything. He also has a wonderful hand painted face and plastic nose ring! I imagine that he might have been used to display jewelry of the era ie Bakelite and Lucite figural jewelry, or to hold business cards for a colorful business selling unique accessories. Only limited by your imagination! Measures 11-1/2" tall by 7" wide at the arms, and 6" deep at the base. Weighs 567 grams total prior to packaging. He's in very good condition overall, but looks like he might be missing a third button on his torso which could be replaced if you prefer. I haven't touched him, he's exactly as found, and sold as found. Excellent vintage condition with the above caveats as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
