Measuring 5 inches in length, this circa 1930's, celluloid, novelty toy alligator remains in pristine condition despite its 80+ years of age! Marked "JAPAN" on the underbelly, the alligator retains his original mini pencil which features a finely-detailed, African-American man's head at its end. A novelty item of the period which reflects the prejudice of the era.
