Scarce applause hammer from Florenz Ziegfeld Jr’s “Danse de Follies” called the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic. Circa, 1915 New York City.
It was a late night revue at New Amsterdam Theatre’s roof top level 680 seat club that featured a mechanized stage that rolled back to reveal a dance floor, and a glass walkway allowing chorus girls to dance right above the customers. More risqué than the Ziegfeld Follies, the girls at the Midnight Frolic were cautioned to wear bloomers, but the rule was not closely followed. So that theater-goers would not have sore hands after applauding excessively, Ziegfeld provided these little wooden hammers allowing audiences to bang out their appreciation.
Measures approximately 6.125” long.
