The W.C. Fields or general comedian enthusiast or collector will like this piece of novelty memorabilia of one of America’s greatest comics. W.C. Fields was famous for his red nose, and this piece plays upon that.
A cartoon of W.C. Fields is affixed to a bright red plastic base. W.C. has a red light bulb for a nose. A small metal tab sticks out from his buttonhole flower. From the side of W.C.’s head extends a little cord with a metal end. This is all mounted on a bright red plastic base.
To test the charge of a battery, you put the battery end on the metal contact on his jacket flower. Then place the cord’s metal tip at the other end of the battery. Theoretically, if the battery is charged, then W.C.’s red nose will light up. (I tried but was not successful.)
The back has a notch for wall hanging.
At the bottom front of the figure is printed:
W.C. Fields Red Nose
1974 American Noveltronics Corporation
Dimensions in inches: 6 ¾ x 2 1/2
Very good vintage condition. The W.C. Fields cartoon adheres soundly to the red base. Upon very close inspection and in the right light, a few faint scratches can be seen on W.C., but they are very shallow and do not change the color of the sticker. The back has a few very slight shallow scratches.
