This very collectible Vintage Black Americana String Holder called "Help! Help!" was produced in the 1940s by a small company now out of business in Paducah, Kentucky: Keystone Studio (see the additional photo of one of their ads). It measures 9" high and is made of chalk. Its paint is original and it is in very good condition - having no chips or cracks. But remember this is chalk ware and it does show slight crazing due to age. Also this being chalk ware there are imperfections that are characteristic of items that are made of chalk. It still has its original wire hanger on the back for hanging on the wall. There is a place in the back for a ball of twine. The string comes out the ball of twine. Incised on the bottom is KS77" (see the additional photos). While I do not agree with the production of this string holder, it is a piece of legitimate Black American History and is therefore collectible. If you are a collector of string holders or black Americana you will want this one!
A copy of the original ad showing this string holder will be given to the buyer.

I purchased it in Bloomington, Illinois in 1971 along with several other Black Americana items in a small collection. It has hung in a smoke free home for years and later packed away for many more. We are in the process of unpacking many boxes of collectibles and will be offering many as we locate them. Here is your chance to own not only a piece of history but a terrific collectible! Thank you for looking!
