KLUMPE BLACK MEMORABILIA GOLF CADDY DOLL with original label and original
tag. I do not know his exact age, but I think he is from the 1950's.
If anyone knows more, please let me know. This caddy doll is a great
Black Memorabilia collectors' piece. He is very much a stereotype
with his exaggerated large lips, cigarette and slouching. Not many
of the collectible Klumpe dolls were Black Memorabilia pieces. Klumpe
dolls are stuffed felt over wire made in Spain. The faces are some
sort of hard composition with, I believe, handpainted features. The
eyes are applied glass or plastic. His shirt looks to be cotton.
His pants and hat look to be wool. I think everything else is felt
or yarn. He can stand on his own, but like all Klumpes -- it is not
a sturdy stand. He has his original Klumpe tag as well as original
price tag. He came from an estate of non-smokers and he was stored
in a glass front library bookshelf (no attic or cellar smells for him).
He is 11" tall. Based on other items in the estate, I think he might
be a souvenir from Pinehurst in South Carolina, but I have no proof of
He is in very
good to excellent condition. He is not at all faded nor does he have
any damage to the doll. There is no fading or soiling. I do
not see any defects except for the woolie moth holes in his pants.
He has 4 of them total. 2 on the back of his pants as shown below,
then one very tiny one next to his left pocket and another small one (smaller
than either of the 2 shown) on the inside of the crotch of the pants.
1972 MATTEL RINGLING BROS. and BARNUM & BAILEY TOY CIRCUS WITH ORIGINAL
The playset consists
of a vinyl carry case (measures 10" x 6 1/2" x 3" when closed). It
originally came with 10 circus acts. I have parts of 9 acts but only
3 complete acts (the trained Gorilla and Monkeys act, the trained dogs
and horse act and the clown act -- all the parts but none of the decals).
I have the parts of the wild animal act, high wire act, trapeze act,
high diver act, human canonball act, springboard act.
The playset is
rare, but finding it in the box is even rarer.
These acts were
give-aways at Shell gas stations. There are far more of the acts
available (mint in their original plastic), than the Mattel playsets.
I have seen the acts go for as little as $2.00 on Ebay.
The carry case
unfolds to a 3 ring circus. Set up, the circus measures 24" long
x 9 1/2" deep x 12" high.
The bottom of
the carry case reads, "0829", "Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Combined Shows Inc.", "1972 Mattel, Inc."
The set comes
with its original box. The box has great graphics too. It measures
13 1/2" x 10" x3". There is a lot of extra space in the box now,
but there would have been space needed for the acts when they were still
on their plastic frames. Among the many things the box says, it
has "No. 0506" on it. I think you can probably read everything else
fine. If not, please feel free to ask.
The carry case
is in excellent condition. It really is all in near mint condition
except for that one area of discoloration on the grass of the inside of
the set. The color is bright. There are a few very small spots
of color misses on the carry case that were part of production. The
case is solid with strong tabs showing no wear. It sets up easily
and stays together. The handle is strong and the clasp is strong.
There is no wear on the edges of the vinyl and no tears in the vinyl.
Of course, the
playset is missing some of the pieces of the acts as mentioned above.
The pieces of the acts that are there are in excellent condition.
There is one area
of discoloration on the inside of the case between the center ring and
the right ring. It is a streak of brown and then some yellow to the
right of the brown streak.
The box shows
some wear on the color on the top of the box. Also one end has a
tear where it closes but amazingly the closing tab still does its job.
OF OZ TOTO CHARACTER PUPPET, from Ivory Snow mail-away promotion; soft
plastic head, soft vinyl body, about 8" long and 10" high,
fine to very good condition with only a small amount of wear on the head
and a small tear on one side of the soft vinyl body #CC25642toto
CHALKWARE SANTA BANK, PROBABLY 1920'S OR 1930'S BUT HE COULD BE MUCH OLDER,
10" TALL, 6 1/2" WIDE AND 3 1/2" DEEP, HE IS HOLDING HIS SACK OF GOODIES
IN ONE MITTENED HAND AND A HORN IN THE OTHER, HE IS INSIDE A GREEN CHIMNEY
WHICH IS TOPPED WITH SNOW, HE HAS THE REMNANTS OF SILVER GLITTER
ON THE FUR OF HIS CAP AND ON HIS BELT BUCKLE (IT IS THE REALLY OLD TYPE
OF SILVER GLITTER THAT TARNISHES WITH AGE LIKE SILVER DOES - DID
IT HAVE REAL SILVER IN IT?), condition is very good, with wear on his paint
( which, I think, lends Santa a charm), a couple of what I think
are hairline cracks (one on the side of his head and one on the chimney),
but which might be layering in the chalk, they are so fine I doubt they
go through the depth of the chalk, Also, there are some shallow chips -
3 on the horn and one on the bottom of the chimney. That spot on
Santa's cheek in the top photo, I believe, is a peeling of a single layer
of the chalk #X25402 $65.00
