A darling and scarce wooden jointed figure, circa 1930's. The comic strip Krazy Kat was created by George Herriman in 1926 featuring as one of the main characters Ignatz Mouse. Many believe Ignatz was the inspiration for Walt Disney's creation of Minnie & Mickey a few years later. Ignatz is painted black and white and measures 6 1/2" in length. Very good vintage condition with light wear, some paint chipping on the nose and missing his cord tail. The toy is attributed to the Jaymar Specialty Company which produced many different wood jointed toys during the 1920s and 1930s in Brooklyn, New York. Many of their toys were character pieces representing familiar cartoon and radio characters of the 1920s and 1930s including Little Orphan Annie, the Popeye family, Amos and Andy, Puss 'n' Boots, Moon Mullins, and Ignatz to name a few.
