Ornaments

I went to a holiday party recently.  For decades the hosts have collected cloth ornaments depicting either famous historic figures or fictional figures.  I stood at the tree along with 
several other guests, trying to figure out who the ornaments were.






W. C. Fields, Harry Truman and Abraham Lincoln are here.  I never found Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The rest of the ornaments are for you to identify.

Gosh, what a fascinating collection. I've never seen anything like that. I rather like the Scottish piper, though not sure if he's anyone famous.

I think I would do terribly in trying to identify any of them, Jack!

A fantastic idea - and I'm sure everyone had fun trying to work out who was who. Great captures Jack.

One of them, in the top hat and tux, appears to be Duke Ellington.

This is a great idea. I don't think I have ever seen these types of ornaments.

That's Ruth Bader Ginsburg dressed as Marie Antoinette. You're welcome.
