|The picture shows two views of this Old Ceramic Cracker Jack Advertising Musical Statue. It is not dated but it is from the mid 1970s. The company that made this statue had also made two other Cracker Jack advertising items, including a Cracker Jack advertising coin bank, and a set of four advertising coffee cups. The statue was originally ordered from a catalog or purchased in a store.|
The musical statue has the familiar Sailor Jack & Bingo characters with the Cracker Jack logo on the base. They are standing on a three dimensional looking pile of pop corn and peanuts. There is a wind up mechanism on the bottom. It plays the song ''Take Me Out To The Ballgame'' as it spins around slowly. The bottom is marked with printing as well as a paper label as follows:
CRACKER JACK ®
IS A REGISTERED
TM OF BORDEN, INC.
The statue measures 8'' tall. It is in working order and in near mint condition as pictured. There are a couple very tiny paint flakes on the blue uniform. Most of the white spots in the picture are light reflections, but a couple really tiny ones are on the side of his right leg and on the back of his collar are flakes or wear spots. These are very minor and could be easily touched up.
