C.1940 German Pressed Paper Witch ON A BROOMSTICK Ornament/Decoration
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: From Germany, here's a pressed paper ornament/decoration of a Witch on Her Broomstick! The piece is colored on the front in tones of black, white and reddish orange - and yes, the witch has a green eye!. The ornament/decoration would have hung on a wall or in the window during Halloween! Stored for a very long time, the front of the ornament has a shiny black texture but with shades of "dust". The back of the ornament is almost the color of brown kraft paper. There is a hole at the top of the hat in which a piece of green wire has been inserted.
CONDITION: Very nice for its age; there is a bit of wear to the front in small spots and there is some crackling to the back of the paper - looks like the paper was coated in something during the manufacture process and is beginning to break down (like old Victorian-era glue). I have not tried to clean the paper, nor will I as the paper shows all the age indicative of a true German Halloween collectible!
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 8" x 4-1/2"
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
