Black Face JOL Boy with Saxophone, Germany, 1935.

 

This is among a relative handful of German diecuts made in 1935 and shipped exclusively to eastern Canada before the outflow of holiday goods from Germany was shut down for good until 1946. The four designs comprising a complete set are elusive. The condition of this example is below my normal acquisition threshold. However, given any of the four diecuts are extraordinarily rare, its present state is of little consequence. A remarkably intact example (no creases, tears or holes) exhibiting moderate surface wear and staining consistent with slightly adverse storage conditions. 15.5” h x 6.5” w, heavily embossed.
