Pot Belly Figurine

This is another item that I originally saw in the Signals and Wireless catalogs, although they weren't exclusive to those venues. These are the Pot Belly figurines, amusing little trinket boxes about 2 1/2 inches high. The figurines available include royalty and other historical figures, scientists, artists, musicians, and authors. They even have McCain and Obama!

Although this type of thing might normally be considered more appropriate for a woman, I think that a man might also appreciate a little figure of some role model such as Einstein or Ben Franklin. There are even animal Pot Bellys, although they might be more appropriate for kids. Personally I'm partial to the royals, including Elizabeth, Victoria, and Henry VIII picture above. Their proportions are so comical!

What: Pot Belly Figurine
Where: 20th Century Glass Pottery Collectibles website or the Signals or Wireless catalogs/websites
How much (as of today's post): $15.00 (plus shipping)
