Novelty printed paper coil showing a tipsy man

This novelty is most unusual in that the tipsy man has been printed in colour on the flat side of a coil of paper. The round coil is housed in a square cardboard container which has partial openings at the front and back. By moving the picture with thumb and forefinger the coil can be twisted, so distorting the man. The words on the cardboard container are 'Zetes-Patent'. This is one of a number of designs of this novelty - see also ref. no. N1314 and N1315.
