This vintage Halloween container, made of black plastic, was probably used as a candy party favor. A smiling jack-o-lantern sits on the back of the black cat. The top of the j-o-l is open and little candies probably filled the cavity originally. On the back it is marked Rosbro Plastics Prov. R.I. and was probably made in the 1950's or 60's. The orange color is painted over the black plastic.
It measures about 2 5/8" high and 3 ¼" across and is in fairly good condition. The plastic is in generally good condition with minimal wear but there are two flaws. There are a few nicks on the top edge of the right side and there is a hole on the cheek of the cat below its right eye. These could be manufacturing flaws or not. Some of the orange paint shows light wear and is faded along the right seam.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
