Bottle 221 - Gendarme and the Drunk
Date Added: 01 October 2005

Unusual French model in a bottle depicting a drunk sitting against a lamppost being admonished by a gendarme. Both figures are pegged at the arms and legs to not only allow entry in the bottle but also to move them into a posed position. The figure's features are drawn on the wood. The drunk has a bottle in his hands and the Gendarme has a hand raised with one finger pointed up as if giving a sound lecture. The label on the bottle reads "Travail Artisanal .. Fait Main .. Rincez-moi." The large label reads "Nos sujets fabriques exclusivement en bois fruiter. Dos alcools auront une belle couleur ambree."
