These fun Halloween pieces are old noisemakers made of a light weight cardboard with a wood whistle mouth pieces sticking out of the top of the head. On the cardboard around the mouth piece it reads; Japan Patent...and then some numbers that are only partially visible. When the whistle is blown the orange wax paper unrolls revealing a black feather.
The cat has a silly grin and spooky orange eyes. It measures about 3 3/4" across the widest portion of the face and is in nice condition with minor wear. There are a couple of creases including one across the left ear. There is a fine wire that runs the length of the piece that unrolls but it has several breaks in it so it doesn't retract as well as it once did but it is still effective.
The scary looking skull measures about 2 7/8” across the eye sockets and is in nice condition for a paper piece. It has a slight warp to it so it doesn’t lie flat. The fine wire in it also has several breaks like the cat so it doesn't retract like it use to either but they are still fun paper toys.
Priced and sold as the pair.
