Lot 106 1920s Czech Clanger with Horn Handle (BOOK ITEM)
This clanger was made in Czechoslovakia during the 1920s. It measures ~11.5” high by ~4” in diameter. The imagery differs on either side, being on lithoed paper over wood. One side shows a fearsome devil while the other shows a comparatively benign black cat. The clanging balls are original. The reed in the horn handle works just fine! I’ve only seen this a handful of times over the years. Many of them were in poor condition. This is the very item photographed for my reference books and appearing on page 198 of the third edition. This entered the collection on August 14, 1998. The prevailing bidder will receive a handwritten note on my personal Halloween stationary attesting to this provenance.
