|The picture below shows a larger view of all (4) Old Cracker Jack Pop Corn Confection Pot Metal or Lead Toy Prize Ram Sheep Animal Figure Charms in this lot. This lot has two figures that have bases to stand on, and two charm figures that could be used as a necklace pendants or charms, on a charm bracelet, or on earrings. These type prizes are not dated but they were made from the 1910s to the 1940s. They are made of a pot metal or lead. Many early pot metal Cracker Jack prizes (but not all) have company ID numbers, but we are not going to attempt to find, or provide all of those numbers, at this time.
Many of the early pot metal or lead prizes were manufactured by Dowst (Samuel Dowst), or the Tootsietoy Company of Chicago, Illinois, but there were many other different companies in the United States, and including ones from Japan and Germany prior to World War II as well. Some of these type prizes were made specifically for Cracker Jack, while others were made as small novelties, bought in volume, and used as prizes by The Cracker Jack Company. Pot metal or lead prizes were some of the earliest prizes that were used in Cracker Jack boxes from the 1910s to the late 1940s. Many of these type prizes or novelties were also sold from old Johnson Smith & Company catalogs as well as some other early novelty catalogs, also used in fortune telling sets, and some were also sold and used as board game parts. Many of these can be found factory painted, inked, or with no finish at all. Of the four prizes in this lot, three are painted in red, blue, and green. One has no finish.
All four of these miniature ram goat prizes for one price! To judge the sizes, the larger goat figures measures about 1-5/8'' x 5/8'' x 1/8''. These appear to be in mint condition, as pictured.
