Not the greatest shot but this Ubangi barware is the most beautiful I have ever seen. I have no idea if Allee has more Ubangi kitsch in storage but it all needs to be out on display.

This is a bell that greets you when you walk into “Willis Wonderland”. I love her skirt.

I believe this is a bottle.

Ubangi bottle opener.

This Ubangi sculpture is made of out various pieces of metal.

This Ubangi ashtray is fabulous. The smoke rises up and out of her mouth.

    I have tons of everything kitsch in storage and Ubangi abounds.

    I have quite a few variations on the African and Ubangi (two different things) necklace bottle openers in the first shot. I often wear one of them when I throw parties.

    I got the little bell in the second photo when I first started shopping on eBay in 1998.

    The third photo is a bottle opener, not a bottle. If you saw it from the side you would see that the top of her head lifts caps off and her outstretched legs balances her in the sitting position.

    The opener in the fouth photo belongs on a chain and on the kitchen wall along with the ones in the first photo.

    The African native in the fifth photo is actually my favorite. Believe it or not he’s a pen! Everything above the neck lifts out. Needless to say, he’s the best pen I own.

    I have quite a few of the ashtrays in the last photo (again, African and not Ubangi). I love resting smokables in them because the smoke chugs out of the mouth.
