Sophie’s contest entry:
I am a longtime lurker but have come out of hiding to share my Drinking Lucky Bird. I remember being fascinated by one as a child in the 80s (when, I believe, they were already vintage) so when I found this one tucked away in a drawer at an estate sale I didn’t hesitate to bring him home.
If he worked he would would bob up and down “drinking” from a glass. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been well looked after and he will only drink a few times before he stops. But his face is so full of vintage character (even with a piece of tape holding on his eyes!) that I keep him up on the shelf in my office. He makes me smile!
Thanks for a great site!
