Lot 89 Large 1920s German JOL with Black Highlights and Accordioned Paper Hanger
This large compo washed JOL was produced in Germany during the very early 1920s. It measures ~4” high by ~5.25” across. (All measurements exclude the bale, if present.) Unusually, this has black highlights at the eyes, nose and mouth plus its original accordioned striped paper hanger. (I’ve seen too many German JOLs being sold with faked accordioned paper hangers over the last few years. This is, of course, the real deal.) When extended, the hanger is ~5.5” long. The insert is original. There is a closed tear to one side of the mouth. There is no separate bottom piece. The earliest of the German JOLs were made with a rounded bottom. There is no interior wax residue.
