Circa: 1940s - 1960s Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Various Makers
Five different tin litho metal noise makers, typically used for New Years Eve celebrations and birthday parties. The clown paddle and clicking twirler are marked Made In Taiwan, as is the red noisemaker with the masked lady and Pierrot, which is a Kirchhof design. I presume these date to the 1960s though they look older. The square twirler with the purple polka dots and the handled rattle noisemaker with the clown and party hats design are both American made. There is some oxidation and typical wear to some of the backs as shown, the fronts are all in good condition.
