    1950s Kokeshi African doll incense burner, made in Japan.
    If you look closely you can see the smoke unfortunately you cannot tell by the picture that he is blowing smoke rings. both of these work but I am low on cigarettes and have not been able to find anyone that even knows what these are let alone know where I can find replacement cigarettes.

      The Japanese made such wonderful Quirky things in the 50s and 60s! Love it.

      Hi Seelerno7, really cool find. Unfortunately many of these smokers were discontinued due to the threat of legal action because the cig resembled a well known cigarette brand. They were called Li'l Smokes you can still see them at "the smokingdonkey.com", maybe reaching out via the contact link may result in some information as to where to possibly get replacements . Best of luck -Soul

      Thanks Soulportal, just now got your message, I was told that the smoking baby cigs might work, but they look to big to me, I sent them a message on smokingdonkey.com but it says they are temporarily discontinued so we will see if they get back to me or not. thanks again.
