Antique Noisemaker Germany Die Cut Pug/Bulldog - A wonderful antique German noisemaker in the form of dog wearing a hat and studded collar. It is double sided with the same embossed dog in three dimensional relief on both sides and made of heavy cardboard. There is a name of Tuk - Tuk in raised letters with Germany embossed on the handle and when you wave it back and forth it makes a slapping noise. I’m guessing it is early 1900’s and am amazed it even survived. You can see some rubs to dogs in photos more on one than the other. One dog has a crack in hat and on one ear but very stable and staples holding them on are in good shape and secure. Paddle has some light bumps on edge and two very light scuffs on handle. The main photo has the tip of my nail on the bottom handle where I was holding it.....not damaged. A great fun whimsical piece that is still in working condition!
