Lot 104 Early 1920s German Flocked Cat Head with Accordion Lantern **
This flocked composition black cat head with accordion lantern was produced in Germany during the early 1920s. It was originally made with inserts, but only a little of the mouth insert survives. Overall, it is quite nice with great sculptural detailing. Most of the flocked lanterns don’t display well and have fragmented, but not this one. The cat head itself measures ~4” high by ~4” across. The accordion lantern measures ~8” long when fully extended by ~5” across. There are a few minor tears and the expected fading to the accordion lantern. Unscrupulous sellers will attach newly made accordion lanterns and try to pass them off as all-original. Any lanterns with bright colors are suspect. This is all-original.
