rottenNot that sewer! This is a really large ceramic sewing kit holder (in the top of the head!) you can see the scissors poking out at the top.

    The kind of kitsch that scares me though I must admit it’s fantastic. Someone really had a vision here. I love the lifeless felt legs meant to sit exactly as you have them at the edge of the shelf. What the blindfold is doing on a child even though he is dubbed “rotten” is something to ponder. I love the bow that’s smacked on the front of the faded yarn hair as well as the nose protrusion and those round puffy cheeks that look like mosquito bites. Freckles always enhance a kitsch ceramic. Do you know when this was made? 1970s?
