This is a 7" carving and I am trying to figure out what this man represents. I think he looks Spanish but am open to other suggestions. He is kind of shabbily dressed - his right pants leg has a big hole. He is carrying a red sack in his left hand and also something in his right arm that looks like an upside down hat - when viewed from the top, the contents of this hat are painted gold (to signify money?)
Now comes the interesting part - notice the round whitish object at his right hip ... and follow it around his back in the panoramic view. He has a whitish sack tied at the top and tied with a red sash to his back - there is a tube (?) connecting from the sack to the whitish object at his hip, and there is another whitish cloth (?) draped over the red sash near his left side.
My college age son thinks this man might be selling wine - what do you see him as?
Thanks in advance.
I got this today from the antique mall. Is this pair crown shaped? There are no marks anywhere to identify them. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I'm trying to decipher the signature on a watercolor landscape. Any help would be appreciated. TIA
Hi I am hoping somebody on this board can help identify this baby doll i have. I cannot find a maker on her. She is vinyl rubber and has looks like glass sleepy eyes. Her hair is original and in great shape. She still looks great. Hoping someone will recognize who she is and age. I have posted in the toy section but nobody is chiming in Thank you in advance.
I'm wondering if anyone can tell for certain from my picturres whether this litttle vase is a reproduction. Thanks in advance for any input.
