Lot 17                1940s Alberts Display Witch by Chimney Candy Holder (Book Item)
This candy holder was made by the Alberts Display and Novelty Company of New York sometime between 1941 and 1946 according to the sole surviving son of the company’s founder. It shows a broomed witch with her familiar flying by a brick chimney. Made of rugged, heavy cardboard, the candy holder measures ~6” high by ~3.25” wide by ~7.25” long. It is in near-mint or better condition. This is the very item photographed for my reference books and appearing on page 58 of the third edition. This entered the collection on November 10, 1994. The prevailing bidder will receive a handwritten note on my personal Halloween stationary attesting to this provenance.
