This figure is carrying a load of boxes or cages slung over his back. I say cages for there are slits in the top of the boxes so an animal or bird could breathe. He has a hat in the other hand. The figure is paper mâché with a wood base. The base has a tag indicating Made in Mexico with a EB name. The figure measures 14" tall. Good condition.
