The Gewgaw, Mammy String Holder



In the 1950's, this would have been mounted to the wall of the kitchen. A ball of string would be loaded into the hollowed cavity behind her ample belly, with the string dispensed through the poor woman's bosom.

This is sure to offend anyone of color who steps into my home, so I camoflage it in my display cabinet behind the peon-riding-a-burro coaster holder, fat n' nekkid german woman ornament, and the Injun Tooth Tepee.
