Lot 109 1910s Devil German Horn with Wood Top (BOOK ITEM)
This very large paper litho over cardboard horn was made in Germany during the 1910s. It shows a jaunty devil on his way to torment souls. It stands an enormous ~14.25” high. There is surface paper loss at the bottom rim of the horn and a few age-related paper cracks here and there. Considering that the horn is around 100 years old, I think it is in remarkable condition. The wood top is completely intact. This is an item I purchased from Hugh Luck when visiting his home in 1995 prior to his big sale through Dunbar Gallery in 1997. This is the very item photographed for my reference books and appearing on page 195 of the third edition. This entered the collection on September 30, 1995. The prevailing bidder will receive a handwritten note on my personal Halloween stationary attesting to this provenance.
