That vulture-pelican cane handle/pipe--Might that be used for "sucking on his...cane?"

My exes mother had a creepy doll whose head was bald and cracked in all sorts of manners, the thing scared the bejesus out of me. They saw nothing wrong. *shudder* creepy old dolls.

and for the ultimate creepy doll experience: The Island of Dolls.

I wonder why the first creeping doll has that flat shelf on its back. Maybe you could set drinks or snacks on it and use it to send them across the room to guests.

On a related note, I posted some Halloween-appropriate materials to the Houghton Library Tumblr today.

The carte de visite is a (particularly bad or degraded) print of Blossom and Decay. I spent a good few minutes trying to track that down and as it turns out pretty much every artist has had a go at it, it would seem.

I'm pretty sure that wind-up friar escaped from a Quay Brothers film.

There's also a great Musée des Automates underneath the Marquis de Sade's house in Paris.
