McLoughlin Bros. Yellow Kid Ten Pin Game

McLoughlin Bros. Yellow Kid Ten Pin Game, ca. 1896, one of the greatest Yellow Kid toys, the design of the box is one of the most appealing of all boxes by McLoughlin, inside are ten lithographed paper on wood cutout figures of Mickey Dugan, each with a different saying related to bowling and a simulated signature of his creator, on the reverse of the figures are ten illustrated verses of a popular rhyme of the period, "Ten Little N____", all figures are otherwise identical but for one with a Victorian man's velvet smoking cap who is designated I'm de King pin - see?, the figures retain extremely bright color as does the wonderful box cover, the box bottom is paper covered wood, a ball compartment has two of the original wooden balls, exceptionally rare, this is only the second boxed set we have seen, box - 26" x 11 1/2", figures - 10 1/2" h.
