Jacko the Educated Glove Monkey

Davenports named their glove monkey ‘Jacko’ and sold it over many years. With skilful handling Jacko could be brought to life and accomplish miracles. It is likely that Jacko took several forms over the years, depending on supplies. Here are two examples. One appears to be a sample because it has a label around its neck: 45715 JAPAN. The other has a label on the back of its head saying FOREIGN.
