These 5"X7" charming pieces have the distinction of being 3 dimensional. They appear to be paper (as opposed to metal) but despite my best efforts (and a remarkable range of search words!), I've been unable to find any information about this sort of art. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Hi there, do your pictures seem to be raised out from the paper. The reason I wrote this as I think I may have one the same. The picture is raised from the rest of the picture. The back ground stays flat.
  2. Nostalgic Nostalgic, 7 years ago

    Yes, that is the case. The figures are raised. It's an interesting effect and I'd love to know more about them. Cheers.

    These are 3-D, Two -D is width and lenght................................these have depth which makes them 3-D.....

    You're absolutely correct - my mistake! I'm grateful for you pointing it out and have fixed it.

    Thanks, Mill-eon - you've given me all the information I now have! I'll take some time to see if I can dig any deeper and I'll definitely keep you posted of anything I learn. Cheers.

    Hi Sybil,

    Sadly, I haven't been able to come up with any more information but I'll continue to search and will post any findings of interest here.

    I have a Blue Boy and a Pinkie. In very good condition. They were my Mom's or Grandma's. Wondering if collectors would look for something like this.
