Here we offer a genuine, original Kenton cast iron Mamma Katzenjammer figure from the popular turn-of-the-century newspaper comic strip, the Katzenjammer Kids, as offered in the Kenton 1905 catalogue. The figure features a tab at the base of her seat for hooking into Kenton carts and/or carriages. The figure also features a string at underside that when pulled lifts Mamma's arm and mechanically causes her to spank the bawling child, a humorous feature of the comic strip. If connected properly to the Kenton carriage, the mechanism would cause the spanking to happen whenever the toy was rolled. Around the turn into the 20th Century, Kenton Hardware Company produced a slew of cast iron toys from its Kenton, Ohio home.
Remaining paint on this figure is original. This treasure of Americana will make a wonderful addition to your collection or a surprising stocking-stuffer.
