This is a Donkey-mounted apothecary and general store, owned and operated by a 9 year old boy who pulls it along by it's lead and hawks his wares. The boy climbs up on fences to reach the top drawers. The structure had been painted and worn down and repainted so many times that it's real color is hard to define.

The boy keeps anything he can fit into the cubbies in this mobile-store, any thing he thinks he can sell. Rose water, tea, poultices, herbs, bergamot oil, dried mint, witch hazel, raspberry preserves, salt, sugar, tin and horn cups, sewing needles, ribbon, buttons, carved wooden soldiers, pots of ink and anything else he thinks a customer might come to him for.

Made from a plastic Donkey toy with the structure built on top with paper clay. painted with acrylics. about 6.5 inches tall.
