Figural Cat Carnival Knockdowns

Circa 1920-1940: These stunning 13" tall double sided hand painted oil on canvas carnival knockdown figures in the form of cats are the simply best we have seen. One thing that makes this pair of early carnival punks so charming is that the anonymous fok artist personified them by picturing them in white dress shirts, bow ties, suit jackets and button down vests. These formally dressede felines are sturdily constructed of thick canvas, tightly stuffed with fabric, extremely well sewn, and nailed all the way around to 3/4" thick wooden bases which are varnished on the bottom. They were made to withstand a daily beating from the folks on the midway, and they did. These fine figural folk art knockdowns have withstood the test of time and are yours for the taking.
