This rare paper toy cut out was titled, "Whoa Mule". It was an insert in the Boston Globe as an "art supplement" in 1905. When the toy is assembled it features a clown riding on a mule at the circus. The mule nods back and forth when placed on a table with a weight behind it. The mule is in the middle ring of the circus tent while a dog stands on a ball, a dog jumps through a hoop and a dog stands on his hind legs. A ring master is in the ring with another clown.

This amazing piece of vintage ephemera is lithographed on heavy stock. It includes directions for assembly as well as a "cutting key" which illustrates the finished circus toy. The title reads, "Whoa Mule - Copyright 1905 by J V Sloan & Co, 1 Madison Ave., N Y Patent Pending - Supplement to the Boston Sunday Globe". The piece measures 10" x 7 7/8".

This paper toy is in good, uncut condition with minimal yellowing (as is to be expected of a piece of this age) and a small tear at the bottom left edge (see photo 5) and a piece of the top right edge missing (see photo 1). Neither "flaw" affect the toy.

A rare, hard to find piece of vintage ephemera.
