This is just an adorable, hand crafted tray. The artist, Hucke, has drawn a cartoon of a mama hound dog with all 11 puppie in a field. One of the puppies is black and the others are not, which would refer to the inscription: "I shouldn't have listened to so much Amos and Andy" The tray has a few ring marks, and some varnish is worn. One handle appears to have split but is still in tack and the back has a split in the wood.
Amos 'n' Andy was a situation comedy set in the African-American community. It was very popular in the United States from the 1920s through the 1950s on both radio and television. Amos and Andy began as one of the first radio comedy series, written and voiced by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll and originating from station WMAQ in Chicago. After the program was first broadcast in 1928, it grew to become a huge influence on radio series that followed. The show ran as a nightly radio serial from 1928 until 1943, as a weekly situation comedy from 1943 until 1955, and as a nightly disc-jockey program from 1954 until 1960. A television adaptation ran on CBS-TV from 1951 until 1953, and continued in syndicated reruns from 1954 until 1966.
