Just a happy one, made it looks to me of a croquet/bocce ball for the head and I'm not sure what for the body, but surely something repurposed from an earlier use. With black painted features on the face and buttons down the front, plus red eyeballs. Stands up on its own, and would make a pretty great knock down to lob a ball at, which may have been the intent.
8” tall. Sold and sturdy, I'd guess pretty much indestructible, mid 20th c. or so, with nice general wear.
