SOLD - Pure Kitsch - 10 St Louis Carnival Supply Co Gold Fish | The Gypsy Madonna Collection

May I offer......

AGE: C.1950 or so

ITEM: Kitsch at its best! From the St. Louis Carnival Supply Co (no longer in business) come these adorable pieces of wood. Made in Japan, I am sure these are the fish that might have been found floating in a fishing pond - you know, pick a fish, turn over, find the number and grab the prize. Or, screw in an end hook and when a kid put his fishing rod over a screen, he would hook the fish with a number and, again, pick a prize.

CONDITION: Very good - pretty clean. Some wear to the edges on some of the pieces, other have black ink scuffing from the back logo. All the paper JAPAN tags are intact save one.

HALLMARKS: St. Louis Carnival Supply Co., 3928 S. Broadway, St. Louis, MO JAPAN

SIZE: Each fish measures 3-1/4" x 1-3/8"; 3/8" thick.

FINAL COMMENTS: Just a hoot!
