I enjoy doing off the wall post’s. I have been known to criticize our city government for their lack of ability to function. I do not blog for attention. I blog for fun and once in a while to educate. Normal viewing for Alex Cenla is any where from 50 to 200 hits a day. If anyone visits my blog it is by links from some of the local blogs or by search engine results for a specific subject.
Genius Antiques who sell only on line are a supporter as well as the folks at the Louisiana History Museum.
Now for the past eight or ten years Genius Antiques has had the Yellow Kid sitting on their desk. This little fellow was probably made in the 1920′s to early 1930′s. He is smoking a cigar and is suffering from the effects of it, with his hand on his stomach. Has not thrown up yet but looks like he might do so at any moment. So for the bobble head collector or cigar fan, Genius Antiques is going to let this little rascal be adopted… (Maybe, if someone wants him.) Then give all the proceeds to the Louisiana History Museum. I will be the go between as the saying go’s. This is strictly for fun and the only person to benefit from the whole thing will be the museum.
He is cast pot metal with the original paint. The bobble head works and he stands on his two feet. He is very rare. He can be considered a smoking collectible or a vintage toy.He is 3-3/4 inches tall. First donation of over $50.00. (amount you wish to give is up to you.) , check made out to the Louisiana History Museum.
Contact me to make the transaction. firstname.lastname@example.org.
If more than one offer to buy..The highest offer will be the adoptive parent….
I reserve the right to pull this post at any time.
