Bakelite and Plastic "Crib Circus" Mobile Crib Toy

Here is a collectable one doesn't see every day! This mobile is intact and in excellent condition. Even the decal "Crib Circus," on the bakelite holder bar, is readable. This piece dates from the 1930's. The white plastic string is like narrow clothesline. There are hooks at the top. The bells are in good, non-corroded condition. Two bakelite elephants, similar to napkin rings, and a scalloped bakelite circle, similar to a baby bangle, provide hand-holds for the baby. The plastic balls (two of which have hairline cracks) come apart. The crib toy is 10 1/2" wide, 9" long; the hangers are 16 1/2," so the whole thing is 27" long.
