HOLD Kasper Coffee Germany Diecut Cardboard and Wood Clown Game Piece Freebie
Here is another premium or freebie given to a retailer or customer to remind them of a product. This item looks to be geared towards a child. It is a "game piece" that is made from a heavy cardboard diecut of a man dressed as a clown and a wooden base. The clown is impressed "Germany" on the back on the left leg. It is also marked on the front side right leg. On the wooden base it is ink stamped "Please, Mama Buy Kasper's Coffee". The piece is small. It measures 3-1/8" tall x 1-1/2" wide x 3/8" deep.
This freebie is in nice condition. The ink stamp is faded on the right side. I believe this was done during manufacture. The figure tends to lean towards the back. It is not bent or creased at all. There is glue residue where the figure was glued into the base. Nice for the coffee or premium collector!!!
