    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    Does everyone remember these? Very popular back in the day. I think from around the 1970's era or so....Seemed like every home ( or Kitchen ) used to have one of these hanging in it. Good folk Art Craft that took some time to make. This one is about 13 inches tall. Still can see some pencil marks on the back. OH, AND ABOUT THE BACK, looks like they used a can pop pull-tab for the hook......LOL.

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

      Hi Rose, How are you?! I thought these were made long before the 70's, I know some of it was and I don't think I actually remember this particular style although I do remember the the wooden match sticks. I also think, and could be wrong, but doesn't this fall under prison art? Still considered tramp, folk, and collectible art...
