There are many different types of German giveaways. We have flasks both large and small, wonderful figurals with music box bases, clever characters doing "naughty" things and occasionally, something different. The snake bottle pictured here (yes, his head is the stopper) is seldom seen. In many respects, if you really think about it, the bottle is somewhat of a figural flask. He doesn't hold much so he probably wasn't too popular among the larger imbibers. BUT, he also comes in at least one other color (blue) so whoever produced him at least thought that much of him!
