Item Description
We've located another rendition of this "Me Worry" character pictured on page 128 of "Collectibly Mad" by Grant Geissman (Kitchen Sink Press, c. 1992). The book pictures a boxed coaster set with lid text "Sillie-Willie Crazy Coasters 12-Assorted-12". The top coaster shown has this identical art, Geissman notes another has text "Son Of Me Worry" and the other ten have silly or misspelled slogans. His book does not show this big 7.25" diameter hot pad and this is our first example. The piece has a rolled edge with underside holding a sheet of cardboard. Cardboard has dark stains on perimeter, rolled edge has some oxidation and top surface has some paint loss largely on outer edges. Vast major of surface remains clean and glossy. Fine and Rare.
