Item details

I love this rotund little toddler. He appears to be holding on for dear life!
That expression!

He's riding, for all he is worth, a spool of sewing thread.
Either hot-air balloon style. Or perhaps swinging on it like a rope?

But have no fear: THE THREAD IS STRONG!
Willimantic Linen Thread.
***mic drop***

Piece measures 3" x 4.5."
Was originally mounted in period scrapbook. (See photos).

Stunning color lithography. Wonderful little piece from Golden Age of Print Making.

Don't forget to take a peek at my other listings, kids. I always combine shipping.
So, in the words of my nephew, "get yourself something nice." Bundle. And save! :)
