Pre 1920's Heavy Molded Paper Mache Veggie Man Candy Container 5 1/2" tall

What is wrong with this item's face? Smallpox? Chickenpox? One can look at the seller's verbiage in vain for an explanation as to what is wrong with this POS. This kind of pebbly finish became commonplace in the later 1950s on items manufactured in Western Germany. In all my many years of collecting, I have never seen this finish on items purported to be from the era this seller claims.
