Vintage Crumb Brushes w/ Black Figurines (Mid-Century)

$25.00

Vintage 20th century African-American crumb brushes, which were produced and designed to help people clean crumbs off tables and themselves. Good condition with no odors; however, there are some scratches and areas of discoloration. See photos. Small crumb brushes measure 4.5" and tall crumb brushes measure 8"-8.5" high.

About: These are widely considered racist and dehumanizing objects because they employ stereotypes of black, domestic servitude and resemble the sambo archetype (black face, full red lips and exaggerated features.)
