    Caricature of Kaiser Wilhelm II in wood that turns a handle on a knife grinding wheel.

  • Description

    Caricature of The Kaiser.

    Location of events unknown.

    A carving of the Kaiser (Wilhelm II); made from wood; painted; w/ big moustache stuck on; fashioned so that his arms swing and his body moves on bolts; and the hands are attached to a pole; turning a grindstone - a wheel for sharpening a knife. A man (French?) is standing by this invention / artistic creation; and sharpens several of his knives.

    Guess this was his version of sentencing the Kaiser to hard labour.

    Comedy art.
