This is a very unusual old die-cut wall pocket of a black woman that resembles the famous Aunt Jemima. It is made of a lightweight cardboard with a simulated suede texture. The plastic Googly-eyes give her an alert three dimensional expression. There is a panel sewn to the bottom half which makes up two pockets, one for a small pencil and the other for a small notepad. It reads; Just a Kitchen Mammy. This must have been a souvenir piece as it also reads; Tonasket, Wn.. There is a hole stamped in the red bandana to hang her on a nail in the kitchen.
It is in very good condition with almost no wear. There are two areas where the red is chipped off of the top edge of the bandana (see the arrows in the picture). She measures about 8 5/8" long and 5 1/4" across the shoulders.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
