    THAT is very cool!!!!! Is the design in the middle made of a colored paper??? It's ringing a HUGE bell in my mind....but not quite sure....others I'm sure will know.....I DO remember back in the 60's or 70's Mom had acquired a box full of that kind of stuff, some were like a stained glass, with images, some told.....like stories, some looked like yours......she eventually sold the box full at one of her barn sales.....I don't think any of us kept any of them.......aside from all that @Fid posted in his link, these two kinds in particular I DO remember!!!!
