Lot 65 American Merri-Lei Skeleton Clapper (BOOK ITEM)
This great paper litho noisemaker was manufactured by American Merri-Lei sometime during the 1940s to 1950s. This heavy cardboard is lithographed on one side only and has two tin clappers. It measures ~8.25” high by ~2.25” wide. This is the very item photographed for my reference books and appearing on page 199 of the third edition. This entered the collection on July 6, 1996. The prevailing bidder will receive a handwritten note on my personal Halloween stationary attesting to this provenance.
