Halloween Cardboard Candlestick Candy Container

This item was, without question, made in Japan. Most vintage Japanese items were derivative of German and US designs, making them generally less interesting and definitely less valuable than German or US pieces. Compare this to the German candlestick candy container shown on page 105. It has none of the fine detail and inherent charm of the German piece.
