This seems to be a nice 1920s German compo witch candy container. The damage to the hat that the seller points out is a fairly common condition issue for these types of containers and shouldn't greatly affect value. Bear in mind that this container was originally "holding" a broom, not a plain piece of wire. Given that it looks as if the wire has been glued to the hand, that is the more concerning condition issue to me.
