Lot 79 Large 1930s Japanese Compo Wash JOL with Original Insert
The Japanese made a half-hearted attempt to penetrate the JOL market dominated by Germany in the 1920s and through the mid-1930s. They were largely unsuccessful. Consequently, JOLs produced in Japan, especially early compo-wash-over-cardboard examples are breath-takingly rare. This one measures ~4.75” high by ~5.5” across. (All measurements exclude the bale, if present.) The multi-piece inserts are original. There is a small hole at the nose and the mouth has many holes but is structurally intact. The eyes are perfect. There is no interior wax residue.
