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.
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: Buy 1 or buy them all - I have 10 available. Each piece is $2.50.Just let me know quantity before you purchase so I can amend the listing.
