12 Days of Christmas

So my mom made this when she was in high school. She remembers seeing it in a 1960s catalog, maybe from MOMA, but we've not ever found it. It's made of felt pieces glued onto separate cardboard rounds that stack like a cake. My grandfather rigged it so it rotated slowly (but that part doesn't work anymore). Would love to find the original inspiration.

  1. Ragamuffin, your mother was not the only one.
    My uncle made 7 of them, one for each of his siblings & himself, around 1965.
    He said that it was something he saw in a San Francisco Museum of Art publication.
