This fun noisemaker is marked "Germany" on the bottom of the paper mache piece. The noisemaker is called a "clapper", because both sides are the same, and when the piece is shaken, the cats, which are attached only at the bottom, flap open and closed, and "clap" against the cardboard. The piece is made from a yellow paper over cardboard base, with two little paper mache pulp molded cats - one on each side. The photos show a picture of each side. They are the same, with the exception that one side is marked Germany, and the other is not. The noisemaker was made in the 1920's, and was used as a party favor, probably for Halloween or New Year's. The molded paper mache is the same as the egg cartons that are currently sold in grocery stores, and the same that was used by the Germans to make their wonderful candy containers and calendar tops. The noisemaker is in remarkable condition - bright and clean, and measures 7" long and 3" wide. There is a slight bit of wear to the edges, visible in the photos. I have several others of this same type of noisemaker, in different styles, so take a look.
