Just the name Naughty Nellie conjures up an image of someone slightly sinful. In reality, the original Naughty Nellie was a colorful 19th and 20th century iron cast bookjack.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                    

(PRWEB) September 28, 2005 -- Buffalo Bill Cody kept her close to his bedside and boots, and now more than a hundred years later, Mark Harmon, Tom Selleck and James Caan have claimed ownership to one of these little ladies as well. Her name is Naughty Nellie and she is always ready to please. In reality Naughty Nellie was a colorful 19th and early 20th century cast iron boot jack – shaped like a busty woman on her back with legs splayed wide open and arms inviting – who helped cowboys remove their boots after a long day on the dusty trail.

Nannie’s Naughty Nellies celebrates the saloon and dance hall women, who contrary to popular thinking were not prostitutes. More of a companion than coochie girl, these young women would sing for the men, dance and talk with them – inducing them to remain in the bar, buying drinks and patronizing the games. Sexy but not lascivious, these girls were part of the “Westward the Women” migration that helped to settle the West.

An historic reproduction of this sexy saloon girl siren has been recreated by Nannies’s Naughty Nellies in true Americana style along with a contemporary line of fine home and office accessories. Priced from $35 to $85, every cowboy or (cowgirl) can now afford to get “Naughty!”
