This metal sculpture fascinates me.  It doesn’t look like something that you would normally find sitting atop a vintage bathroom sign.  I think the outfit on the sculpture is made out of twisted rubber bands.  Notice the onion lady, tiki water jug, and the Jubilee Ham tin!

Far away shot.  That’s a soul ceramic “Seagrams”  promotional pitcher up on the shelf.

    The wire sculpture’sl outfit is actually made out of reeds, although I can see how they would be mistaken for rubber bands.

    I do suppose that a restroom sign is an odd place for him to be housed but there was no room left on that top shelf.

    You can see the pitcher – Canadian Club not Seagram’s – better here: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2009/09/27/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-1960s-canadian-club-whiskey-pitcher/

    And here’s the ham can: https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2009/03/29/allee-willis’-kitsch-o’-the-day-can-o-ham/

      The tiki water bottle is relatively new. I got it out of the catalog about five years ago though I can’t for the life of me remember which one. But they’re definitely around.
