Offered is an extraordinarily RARE, all-original, pressed paper (heavy cardboard-like), c1920, Germany, dexterity toy.

In mint condition, obviously never used or played with!!

The toy depicts a pipe-smoking Mammy! The object of this game is to catch the pressed paper cardboard ring-- which is attached to Mammy via a string-- using Mammy's pipe. Not an east feat!!

Measures 5 1/2" LONG AND 3 1/2" HIGH. Marked "D.R.G.M." as well as "J. W. S. & S. BAVARIA".

Very rare piece! I have never seen this before nor have I found it listed in any reference books. It is quite likely that due to the fragility of the material it is made of (paper), not many of these have survived to present day!
