Vintage Halloween decoration Anthropomorphic Pumpkin Jack O Lantern Head Witch candy container Germany
Here for your consideration is this composition washed painted cardboard candy container. This cute container depicts a Jack O Lantern head lady witch standing patiently. Candy Containers like this were made in Germany in the 1920’s for the American market, they were made again in the 1990’s. I am not certain of its age. The base is made of cardboard and has a plug where it could be removed and hard candy placed inside. These containers were made of composite material similar to plaster and then painted over cardboard. There were many different styles and shapes of these vegetable people containers from pumpkin to watermelons and everything in between. This little lady is a nice size measuring approximately ½ inches tall by 3 ½ inches. This container is very nice with wear consistent with its storage use and age as you can view in the pictures. You can view similar decorations like this Halloween collectible on page 71 of 3rd edition Vintage Halloween Collectible Identification and price guide. This would make a wonderful addition to any Halloween Collector's collection or a wonderful gift for someone special. Here is your opportunity to make this Jack O Lantern your own.
