    Description

    Aesop's Fables #22 "Waffles" Pinback Button Illustration Original Art and Pin (Western Theater Premium Co, c. 1930s). We have absolutely never seen original art for any of these hard-to-find collectible pinbacks before! Waffles the Cat is quite a joy to behold, created in ink over graphite on 8" x 8" illustration board. It is surrounded by a pasted on Bristol board matting that measures 9.25" x 10.25", and he stands a jaunty 6.5" tall (including text). The boards are lightly toned, with some slight glue residue near the inside edges of the cut-out in the mat. In Very Good condition. Comes with a copy of the actual pin itself in Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
