This is an antique half doll perched on a candy container or container of some sort. Maybe for sewing supplies instead. Since it is empty, I do not know it’s use. It would look great on an antique dresser or in a collection of other hand dolls and pincushions. Whether it came this way or it was a put together by some crafty person I don’t know. All I do know is it came this way. Questions ? Please ask.
