This item is 9 inches x 8 inches. It is made of a thicker paper, almost thin cardboard. The title is: The Judge. There is a pair of hands on the inside border of the central circle. The most prominent hand & wrist is draped in a fringed cloth of blue and tan. It seems to be holding something, but I cannot discern what it is. Perhaps a cup? These hands have a moving mechanism to change the positioning of the fingers. In three corners of the card there are vignettes of differing action. In the lower left corner is a group of four men in powered wigs with long clay pipes. They seem animated as if in conversation. "A jolly good fellow." Is above their heads. The upper left corner has a man in a two wheeled horse cart. Beneath him it says "The one hoss shay." The upper right corner featured a man and woman in colonial dress. She has a fan in her hands and a shawl around her shoulders. He is wearing a powdered wig, has a cane under his arm and his three-cornered hat in his other hand. Beneath them it says "Always gallant." There is no printing on the back. Was this used for shadow puppetry?
