This auction is for a vintage Tom hand puppet, this being Tom the cat from the Tom and Jerry cartoons. It was made by the J.V.Z. Company and most likely dates to the 1940ís. The puppet head is rubber and in good condition with most of the paint still present. The tips of the top two hair strands are open on the ends, but that may be a molding flaw. I have provided photos of the front and back of Tom.
His original googly eyes looked pretty bad, so I carefully gave him new ones the exact same size. The cloth body definitely shows some use. It has light soiling, stains & water stains with some fraying (mainly at the bottom). No tag is present, but it is the original cloth body. This would be a nice addition to any collection of vintage Tom & Jerry toys and puppets.
