This wonderful paper mache noisemaker was made in Germany in the 1920's. It is a "Banana Man" - a life-size banana, with really wonderful details. The banana is yellow with green overtones, and a lovely gold/brown paint at the top, bottom and along the edges. The banana is very life-like! The features are quite charming, and also hand painted. The piece has a wooden mouth piece, and the horn still works. It is very close to mint - any flaws were made during manufacture. The horn is the large size, measuring 7 1/2" long. This same horn was also made in a smaller size (I have one available). There were all kinds of vegetable horns - I have seen a cucumber, and others. Veggie and fruit people were also made as candy containers in Germany from this same time period. They were party favors for Halloween, New Years and other costume celebrations. The horn is made from light weight paper mache, and is stamped "Germany" on the back. I have other vintage and antique noisemakers, so take a look!
