Imperial Granum Doll
1 Imperial Granum Doll
New York Imperial Granum Co. 1915 NA Good 
A package freebie from 1915 from Imperial Graum Food, the maker of the "Unsweetened Food for Nursing Mothers and Babies." 23 by 22 cm. The cloth comes with four cut-outs that can be sewn together and stuffed to make a doll of a cutesie toddler. The two main pieces are the full body from and back of the baby, and then there are two oval pieces for the soles of the feet. The several captions, besides providing instructions, tout the healthfulness of the company's food, and there is also an ad for a version of the same doll that can be purchased with a coupon and 40 cents. A few stains scattered on the cloth, but a very scarce and well-preserved piece of ephemera in its original form.

[Paper Toys] Chocolat Lombart Souvenir de la Fête Four toys:  policeman, private or scout, jockey, clown
3 [Paper Toys] Chocolat Lombart Souvenir de la Fête Four toys: policeman, private or scout, jockey, clown
Fine 
N.d., circa 1900. The toy figures were meant to bring amusement by twirling them around on a toothpick. WIth their limbs attached but movable, the figures would then somersault and engage in spastic acrobatics. The figures came in an envelope along with an instruction sheet and toothpick or axle. We have all these pieces for all the figures we have. We do not know whether the company made other such figures, but we would guess that it did. The company goes back to 1760 and continued in business until 1957 when it was absorbed by another chocolatier, Menier. In the early 20th century it claimed to have the largest factory within Paris.

Nine Nesting Blocks Featuring 45 Brightly Colored Lithographs by Ilse Lungershausen, Lungershausen, Ilse (1900 - 1991)
8 Lungershausen, Ilse (1900 - 1991) Nine Nesting Blocks Featuring 45 Brightly Colored Lithographs by Ilse Lungershausen
West Germany NA Very Good 
N.d., late 1940s to early 1950s. The largest block measures 22 cm, or 8.5 inches, square, and the smallest, 6 cm, or 2.5 inches, with each successive block about 1.5 cm, or .5 inches, larger than the preceding one. The illustrations applied to a particular block tend to have some element in common -- fruits on one, or farm animals, teddy bears, or some other cohesive element, with the largest and most prominent block, being the one that is always exposed, showing scenes from fairy tales. Ilse Lungershausen was a prolific illustrator of children's books and toys. The fairy tale scenes in particular will bring to mind Disney style, and some of the other illustrations have a kinship to other mid-20th century juvenile illustration such as the Sally Dick and Jane primers used in the English-speaking world. The Snow White litho on the largest block has loss on the bottom running between one and two inches tall and representing perhaps 15 percent of the image, and the wood behind this paper loss is also a little chewed up. Otherwise, some wear along the edges, both of the paper and the wood, but all the other images, barring a few trivial losses, are virtually entirely intact.
