This is a puzzling piece, it is a little black man figure standing 3 1/2" tall. This little guy is holding an oval container with two miniature dice inside. It is maybe made of celluloid or bakelite. It has pipecleaner arms and legs - the legs run through two hollow tubes. He wears a little red felt jacket. The piece has no markings and I am not sure of its purpose - maybe for a game of some sort?
