Eldon Dedini's Recipe for Interrogation

You never can tell what ingredients go into a recipe. This original piece of cartoon art by Eldon Dedini was sold on eBay in early 2011 by seller Lyn Etcetera of West Hollywood. The price was $350 postpaid.

The drawing shows a police interrogation and the style suggests it is from the early-to-mid 1950's. The publication history is unknown. The drawing is dedicated by the artist to the Cronheims. The artwork itself is 10 3/4" high by 10 1/4" wide.

Eldon Dedini, "All right, you put in one cup of flour, 3 teaspoons
of vinegar, 4 eggs...then what did you put in?"
Private Collection, David from Manhattan

Inscribed "With my greetings/to the Cronheims!/Eldon Dedini"

Note:  I am once again indebted to David from Manhattan for sharing images of his private collection here. As always, anyone with information on when and where this drawing may have been published should get in touch.
