I have owned this little fellow for well over 30 years and he has been on one of my dressing tables all that time through many a move .
I Always wondered what he held as molded to the side is
3/4 OZ avor. U.S.A .
Thanks to C W I now know it held candy .
I had tried in the days before computers but nothing like him in books (at least down here in OZ .
Antique dealer friends at show tells ( very liquid dinners!!) thought it held a measure of spirits.
It is 4 1/4 " long X 3 1/4 "High X 1 1/2 " wide approx.
I'd love to know more about him can any of you tell me??

    By Jay W. Hawkins (p.505).

    they had other animals on the top like dogs also. I always loved these candy containers, There used to be a book called Bedroom and Bathroom Glass of the 20's-30's, that showed them.

    Is it hollow? Or does it have a bottom cover? And i agree that indeed, Vetraio is an awesome researcher!
