Felix the Cat was a cartoon character from the 30's, like Jiggs.

Can you believe that ice cream was ever packaged in metal cans?

The art work in the middle caught my eye at an antique show, and it fits my idea of whimsical, so I had to have it!

The little wooden man in the bottle sits on a cork, and functioned years ago as a bottle stopper. I have about 6-7 of those, but they are not all on display now. The monk has, on his neck, a bottle opener. You lift his head out of the body and there it is. The taller carving on the right has a bottle opener too.
