This advertising statue dates back to the 1930's and was originally produced as a store display piece to promote Cenol Moth Powder (poison). This statue is made of plaster and stands 24.5" tall. It is painted white with a black base and colored features on the head. There is a slot on each side where celluloid wings were originally inserted and six holes on the body and head where legs and antenna were inserted. The wings and legs are long gone, but the legs/antenna were originally made of pipe cleaner so they would be easy to reproduce. Double click on the photos to see the full image

We'll be completely honest and upfront about this one - this is a truly disturbing ventriloquist dummy. We are calling her Louise for the time being. She is 3 1/2 feet tall and is made out of hand carved wood with glass eyes. Her eyes and mouth open and close, head turns from side to side (actually it will turn all the way around - (Exorcist style) She is wearing vintage 1950's childrens clothing and shoes as well as a Eva Gabor brand wig. This one would be right at home at a Halloween Haunted House or on an episode of the Twilight Zone.
Price: $650 Sorry, she has found a new home
