Vintage Globe 1940s German Pencil Sharpener and Game - VERY RARE

This little gem is a 1930s or 1940s German made Pencil Sharpener and game. Unlike most of the sharpeners in the shape of a globe made at that time this one is held up by a Jester or a Minstrel. The type who would travel with local country fairs and do magic and jokes for the children of the countryside.

This little guy is seen playing the accordian while holding the world on his shoulders. The sharpener portion is contained in the silver colored base and is marked "Germany" on the underside.

The surprise somes when you pull apart the globe. Inside is a cat and mouse and a trap for the mouse. The object of course is to get the mouse into the trap in the least amount of time! This is truly a very rare and unusual piece.

The condition of the entire piece is excellent! The colors on the globe are brilliant and there are no dents and only very minimal wear around the equator where the globe comes apart. The plastic covering the cat and the mouse is also in great condition with no markings and little to no clouding of the surface. The mouse slides easily into and out of its trap! There is a small amunt of wear to the base in the form of light scratching.

I believe that the gentleman I acquired this and several other pieces from kept them as pristine as possible as he was a serious collector!

This is one piece you definately will not see often if at all!!!

A beautiful and unique addition to many collections be it globes, sharpeners, games, tin itho, etc.

As Always, ENJOY!!!
