Collection of 19 Colored Pressed & Die-Cut Souvenir Boards from Kramer's German Bakery Pastries 1643 Second Ave. New York
(Kramer's Pastries)

New York: Kramer's Pastries, 1984. F A bright, colorful group of 'souvenirs' from this German bakery on the upper West side of Manhattan; usually children, little boys are posing as the 'bakers' - little girls are the 'customers'; one of these has an elf or dwarf as the baker; the former owner has noted the dates of acquisition on a few of the items, the final item dated 1999 and noting 'last one'; the bakery closed that year - a landmark of culinary delight in the neighborhood for many years; each item is marked 'German' and is composed of heavy-weight cardstock, pressed and die-cut carefully and vividly colored; each is centered around a baking theme; one 'double' counted as part of the group; average size about 7 1/4" x 6 1/4"; a few with a small mounting pinhole; one with a repair (at back); all colorful, fun and amusing German paper craft work, reminiscent of the old style Halloween decorations made with papier mache - since these are made on such heavy stock, there's a very pronounced three-dimensional effect, having good depth; light wear; very good condition and a delightful group of bakery, cake decorating & culinary ephemera. Very Good Paperback (Item ID: 21177)
