This is a whimsical piece.
It is a doll made from a Parian pipe marked RAOB and the pipe is used as the body of the doll.
A face is painted on paper on the front of the pipe where the bowl is.
The piece appears to be Betty Boop era as the face has a 1920's appearance.The doll is dressed in a slip, a skirt, and a net cape with a tiny silk ribbon attached.
Very imaginative little piece.
Condition: Pipe has a tiny hole in the stem under the garments. Otherwise fine.
Size: Pipe 5 1/4 inches. Whole doll 6 7/8 inches.
