Celluloid Doll Souvenir World's Fair 1939 South Africa
$100.00 Reduced

Celluloid souvenir doll figure made in Johannesburg, South Africa. This doll was given to me by a former teacher of mine in the early 1970's. He said he purchased it at the 1939 World's Fair in New York or the Chicago Exposition I'm not sure which. It is in excellent condition since it has been stored in a box and then in a display case. It is 8" to the top of his headdress, 6 1/2" to the top of his head, the shield and spear are 4 1/2" tall. Clearly stamped in the center of his back in a circular trademark is "Made in Johannesburg, South Africa, in the center it reads, CAT 22 PMI POBox 1921. The hair is short and "nappy" applied to the celluloid. The eyes "sleep". The arms move. Because of its excellent condition this is a true collectors piece. Please call or email if you have questions.
