Vintage Black Americana*AUNT JEMIMA* Mammy Wisk BROOM
I have been Collecting Black Americana for many years. This week, I will be listing several of my choice items.

This auction will be for a 1940s Black Americana or Aunt Jemima small wisk broom or Childs Broom with a red wood handle. Be sure to note the metal hanger on the end!

A most desirable feature of this Broom will be the Paper Label. Through the years, it has remained attached! Rare indeed!
Also note the material used in dressing this Aunt Jemima. True 40-50s style!
As typical in that time frame, she was dressed as any typical Aunt Jemima type black woman with hand painted face, wearing a red bandana, red dress with white polka dots and white organdy apron.

This Aunt Jemima broom or Figurine measures: 11 1/2", broom area only, with the red wood handle measuring 20", plus the hook for hanging.

As for condition, the handle is super. She does have the vintage looks with light dusting. Clothing is very good with no spots or tears.
At the top, she needs a stitch in her black head w the stuffing is showing. Very simple but with hand surgery, I can not do this. Not a big job, a stitch or two.
Not sure if she ever had earrings, but she does not have them now. (Did not have earrings when I purchased it years ago!)
All in all, she is a unique find!

HAVE A QUESTION? Our auctions are intended to be a place to have fun and get a bargain! The price is not a reflection of the quality of the merchandise. Most of our auctions are antique or vintage collectable items. Tfore, are old and subject to some imperfections such as, wear that comes with age, bubbles and mold imperfections, etc. However, we are not experts on all of the items we sell and are unfamiliar with all the particulars and terminology of various collecting fields. We will try to the best of our ability to describe an item and point out any major flaws. We will never intentionally misrepresent an item.

All sales are final unless very unusual circumstances. If a refund does happen to be given, it will not include the shipping/handling and insurance costs.

MONEY ORDERS, CHECKS, AND PAYPAL ACCEPTED FROM U.S. BIDDERS. AS ALWAYS, WILL COMBINE SHIPPING ON MULTIPLE PURCHASES.

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS ARE WELCOME TOO! I do ask that you pay by PAYPAL ONLY due to the extended time element resulting in delays.
