Shackman Wooden JOL in the Original Box Made in Japan
This JOL is made from wood and is hand painted. He has "bulging eyes". The plastic strap to carry this jackolantern by is there but has a couple of breaks. The JOL has a 3" diameter with the eyes and is 1-1/2" tall. It is ink stamped on the bottom "Japan" and it has a Shackman sticker that states "Copyright - Shackman - Made in Japan". The box is 3-1/2" wide x 3-3/4" deep x 1-3/4" tall. The paper label on the top of the box is intact. The box is marked on the side "39" in pencil. This is probably the original price. This guy is from the late 1940s or early 1950s.
This JOL is in nice condition. There are lines in the pictures that look like cracks. There are no cracks. There is paint dust on the paper in the box. The handle is broken as mentioned above. There are bends in the box.
