Description (Brief)
Bookmark die-cut from a sheet of celluloid in the shape of a sprightly older man in spats and a straw hat, labeled "Foxy Grandpa Book Mark 2nd Year of the Musical Comedy." Foxy Grandpa was a comic strip created by Charles Edward "Bunny" Schultze that first appeared in January 1900. It featured a lively grandfather who was constantly one-upping his two grandsons' attempts at pranks and practical jokes.
The strip was incredibly popular, eventually printed as anthologies, becoming a Broadway hit and finally a series of live-action silent movies.
