This is an old ring toss game with ringing Popeye's pipe being the object. The cardboard die-cut of Popeye stands in the little block of wood that was originally glued to the bottom of the box above the directions. The wood pipe is the inserted into the hole in Popeye's mouth. The three rings would be separated and then tossed over the pipe seeking a "good" score of 500 points. This game, No. 17, was made the Rosebud Art Co. of New York and has a 1935 copyright by King Features Syndicate, Inc.. Although is appears the rings are un-separated, I'm guessing they were just put back as they were since other elements indicate the game was used.
Popeye alone measures about 10" high and is in generally good condition with some signs of wear like the bottom edge which is flared some from being placed in the stand and the hole wear the pipe has been placed. The rings and pipe are basically clean and in good condition as is the base except for the fact that it was originally glued inside the box.
The paper covered box measures about 5 1/6" by almost 11" by 1" and shows wear with soiling and water stains, edge wear and some missing paper where some masking tape must have been removed. A piece of the tape is still on one end of the box.
