RAPHAEL TUCK - THE LITTLE ARTIST EPHEMERA, RELIEF NOVELTY SERIES NO 215L SERIES NO 215B0
Here is a good example of Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd of London, Paris and New York and is called The Little Artist. He is No 215L in the Relief Novelty Series that they were producing. He measures 14" high and is made from a stiff card which has been creased and embossed to give texture to various parts of him, including his hair, smock, brushes etc., which all feel raised to the touch. He stands up by virtue of the pull-out stand at the back. There is a diagonal crease along the brush he is holding with which means that it flops a little. Some proper paper reenforcement to the back will make this as upright as in its original state.
