    I am guessing this piece is from a trade stimulator, with a logo on top of the goon's head. Any ideas? Composition material, hook inside indicates it was a puppet (or moving device) head. Anyone know the logo?

    Thanks!

      For my money its painted papier mache, or possibly plaster, the hat thing may be a thin veneer of leather. My leatherette film camera cases crack like that. Wafer thin strips of leather or 'leatherette' over cardboard.

      Thanks to Todd at Neato Coolville for solving this mystery! He tweeted to us "That's the head from a Happy Hotpoint doll made by Cameo. He was the mascot for Hotpoint appliances. http://www.antiquesimagearchive.com/items/D9924318.html";

      Someone gets a free t-shirt, but I'm not sure which of you.
