ITEM: You are offerding on a great old C. 1930s wood jointed antique toy doll toy. This was manufactured by the Jaymar Specialty Company and is well articulated and an early example - features King Syndicate Popeye Character Olive Oyl the sailors lithe long time love interest. The original elastic is a bit weak and she won't stand on her own.
DIMENSIONS: 5" x 1.25"
The Jaymar Specialty Company produced many different wood jointed toys during the 1920s and 1930s in Brooklyn, New York. Many of their toys were character pieces representing familiar cartoon and radio characters of the 1920s and 1930s including many King Syndicate Comic Characters - Little Orphan Annie, the Popeye family, Amos and Andy, Puss 'n' Boots, Moon Mullins, and Ignatz the Kat to name a few.
CONDITION: Very good - fine. I cannot tell she might have a little nick in one of her shoes? It is unlikely as the spot or dent has the original paint over the divot so I assume it is as manufactured. Displays very well overall, this is likely the original strings and is not tight and taut as such and no longer stands erect as seen in images here.
100% guaranteed vintage and original as always from Grapefruit Moon Gallery.
