This is the famous 1987 Lamppost Willie. Willie is a classic hobo clown created by Melody In Motion in 1985. This piece is a unique combination of animation and music. It is hand painted porcelain and modeled by Seijji Nakane. Willie's head moves as he whistles along to the song "Three O'clock In The Morning". The musical tune is played by a battery operated tape player. There is a toggle switch to turn him on and off, and a volume control. One of poor Willie's hands grasps hold of a lamppost, while his other clings onto a bottle. This figurine measures 11" tall and 16" wide at the base.
Lamppost Willie is new in the original box with original packing and paperwork!!
It was a gift given to my dad when he retired from Santa Fe Railroad. It is in original perfect working condition!!
