Folk Art Door Stop Doll Bottle - This is one very strange and unusual item. This great piece of American Folk Art, is a Doll with a bottle hidden inside, as though to use to hide some special spirits. Most likely the bottle was filled with sand to weight the doll to hold a door open. I still like the story about the secret stash. The doll's head comes off, and underneath is a bottle to store something secret.
This is perhaps an invention of prohibition, at first sight it's just a sweet doll, but with further investigation it tells an entirely different story. The parts are all stable, and in good condition considering her age. She has some soiling, but if you appreciate Odd and unusual American Folk Art, you will love this wonderful and unusual piece. Head and arms are composite.

Doll Bottle measures 16.5" and her head is about 5" diameter.
