Lot 78                1930s Mechanical Witch Invitation – Probably Hallmark
This mechanical witch invitation has an arm that swings enabling the card to open. Although I am not completely sure of the attribution, I feel this was made by Hallmark as it was included with ephemera I purchased from a woman whose father was a stationary store rep for Hallmark. Everything else was either marked or was known to be from Hallmark through other sources. I have always found the clown shoes to be an odd feature of this invitation. There is toning to the lower right corner of the obverse and some light wear to the inside. The invite measures ~4.25” high by ~2.5” wide closed.

RSIN: 3/Condition: 7
