Offered is a fabulous grouping of 10, VERY RARELY FOUND, 1880's, Black Americana die cuts printed in Germany and sold by the Bim Brothers, London.
The die cuts are a representation of every day European black folk of the 1880s- from a mother holding her infant to an officer in the army, these ten charming die cuts make for a thought-provoking display! Interestingly, yes, these die cuts do indeed have a bluish tinge to their skin color- an occurrence for which no explanation can be offered...
A fantastic Old target game with great caricatures.
Original Gun which fires a cork in perfect working order.
The only issue is where the target stand has been put into the slots so many times, the corners are starting to fray a bit and make it difficult to slot the targets in the holes (This game I suspect will be more as display then playing) but the slots could be widened a bit if requited.
Great hard to find game.
This is a very rare item, they came in three variations, not sure if they ever made it to distribution back in the 50/60's but would have been there at shows for kids advertising the Brand, great condition, has the small holes on the back where the wheels would attach.
N****r Boy Licorice was produced through the 1950s and 60s by the National Licorice Pty Ltd, a company in the USA with a branch in Caulfield, Victoria...

Offered is an extremely rare, C1920s, Federal agency building sign denoting offices for the Bureau For Colored Children. It is quite likely that this 100+ year old sign remains the only one in existence today.
Given that this sign is clearly segregating services for African-American children despite the fact that this was a federal agency, one can only hypothesize that this sign was placed on the exterior of a federal building in a state that endorsed and enforced segregation...

Each "picture card" as they were called then, features very colorful and highly detailed images on the front side with extensive educational information on the back side, written in French, on the various African tribes living in the Belgian Congo during this time period...
