1940s German Made Halloween Pressed Paper Black Cat
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: From Germany, here's a pressed paper black cat ornament that would have hung on the wall or in the window during the festive day! Stored for a very long time, the front of the ornament has a shiny black texture but with shades of "dust". The back of the ornament is almost the color of kraft brown paper. The eyes of the cat are green with black slits. There is a hole punched at the top of the body and a bit of green wire folded into a hangar.
CONDITION: Very nice for its age; there is crackling to the back of the paper - looks like the paper was coated in something during the manufacture process and is beginning to break down (like old Victorian-era glue). I have not tried to clean the paper, nor will I as the paper shows all the age indicative of a true German Halloween collectible!
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 4-9/16" x 6-3/16".
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for the festive holiday!
