This little celluloid figure which was made in Japan is called Pico's Smokie Joe. The little drunk is standing next to a light post and he still has a little piece of cigarette in his mouth. According to the original slip of paper that came with it you could use a cigarette that came with it or a photograph or dollar bill, to light and blow out. Then it says Smokie Joe will smoke and blow smoke rings. He comes with part of an original box that has nice but faded graphics. There is a triangular logo with Pico LA inside of it and the initials JP on either side. It is also marked Japan
It measures about 3” tall to the top of the lamp post and it is in very good condition with bright colors and no damage to the celluloid. I have not tried to see if he'll really blow smoke rings and I don’t think he has ever been used. The box measures about 3 ½” by 1 ½” square. The top flaps are missing and it is slightly soiled besides being faded.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
