Vintage Halloween Die Cut Cardboard Elf, Pumpkins, Clock, Decoration

This eye-catcher is the much sought after Beistle fairy clock made only for the 1923 season. Because it was made for only the one season, these rarely surface for sale. When they do, they are nearly always in the same condition as this example. This is a large, irregularly bordered diecut, so bends, perimeter nicks and surface paper loss defects are common. Condition is, of course, an important factor in determining value. SGV for this masterpiece of design is $750-850. 

10/26 Update: Given the condition issues present with this example, the ending price was a strong $699.99.
