Ain't Love Grand

This from a "novelty item" from 1959. These plastic figures have a little magnet in them and when they get close together...look out! The back actually has instructions for use. No.1- a picture of two hands holding each doll with a "?" by each one. No.2 -a picture of the hands slamming the two figures together. And No.3-a picture of the two dolls together with some red "action lines" above their heads...

The box has these little phrases on the sides enclosed in little hearts with things like: "George love Margaret","Harry Daisy 12-6-1959", and my favorite "Greetings from New York".

"Ain't Love Grand", 2006

6" x 6", oil on cradled Masonite
